Sorry this is a little late. This is an update dealing with the sensor from 9-6-2021. It may be a little longer than normal, but we'll see what happens when I get done typing.
For the last few days, there had been a lot of alarms/alerts going off on the receiver. Some of the alarms/alerts were dealing with Sensor Error/No Readings on and off for most of the day and some early mornings. When the alarms went off early morning, this was going on for a few days back to back and made it hard to keep from being able to get a full good night's sleep. The one part that bothered me about this was, the alarms kept going off even during the day and before/after dinner hours and you never knew when the readings would be back. I also was getting a headache from the nonstop alarms since some of them were also not right for the blood sugars. The system thought I was running lower than I really had been and since the arrows were straight down with one or two arrows, it was never possible to calibrate at the time. Sometimes, it was off by 100-200 compared to what it really was when testing at the time. Very unreliable and stressful.
When I finally changed the sensor and inserted a new one (the one I'm using since last night), I called for a free new sensor to be sent out to me. I was told it'll be here by 9-15-2021 at the latest-- end of day. We'll have to wait and see what happens since having something come in a two day time period seems unusual for a replacement since the Rep. told me 3-5 days for delivery. This must be their standard timing for free shipments to be replaced for equipment in general since this is always what I get told each time I'm on the phone with issues.
So far, the newest sensor is working fairly nicely, so no worries about it, yet. We'll see what happens in the next few days.
