So I got my G4 in the mail and was so excited I decided to do a little experiment. It makes me look like a walking robot but who cares :)
I put the G4 on my thigh (where it is contraindicated from the Dexcom team) and the 7Plus is on my belly on about day 4-5. Please note, I was getting what it seems to be inaccurate readings on and off when I first inserted the Seven Plus--always seems to be that way and then it becomes more accurate around the time about now (day 4-5).
First, that already shows the G4 is better because its showing accurate readings (very!) now and its day ONE on my THIGH! Very exciting.
Also, a couple times today I looked at the Seven Plus and noticed it said out of range for several reading times but I was never out of range. The G4 never once missed a reading :)
First photo: Same readings!
Second photo: Very very close to accurate. Note: My dexcom Seven Plus is in my belly and on day 4-5. I had JUST inserted the G4.
Last photo: notice the TREND. Missing readings on the Seven Plus. And its flow is a little less smooth.
So far: LOVE THE G4! Will update as I wear it for the weekend. Plan to take off the Seven Plus at the end of this weekend.
