A Weird Sensor!: DEXCOM

Today is Tuesday and the sensor from last Thursday had been really having issues since yesterday during the afternoon. This is bad. I ended up talking to DEXCOM’s Technical Support for the 2 free sensors to be sent to me since they were going to replace both for me, anyway. We just had to talk about when I was wanting to have them sent since I didn’t want them disappearing from my house if I wasn’t there at the time.

The old sensor was not giving accurate results. It said that I was 67 with one arrow straight down when I was 255 mg/dl after eating breakfast. Same thing happened today during lunch and my number was higher than usual then, too! It was really way off!

I inserted a new sensor this afternoon and it is still in the warm up period for 2 hours. Will see what happens soon before dinner is done tonight. Calibrations will be around 6:30 pm.😀👍

Just one curiosity slightly off topic. Why it takes time for calibration? Also how accurate are these sensors after calibration?

I will have to ask them for the answer to your questions about the warm up issues.

The accuracies are fairly good, but it depends on how good the sensor you’re using for the time works.

You can always ask any questions about anything.😀👍

Thanks
