Alright, I’m suspicious.
The past couple months my Dexcom has NOT been accurate. I’m talking like, 40-100 points off for at LEAST 4-5 days before it kicks in correctly. The sensor that I just changed was a 2-weeker and almost made me cry because it was so spot on with my meter just before I changed it. (I didn’t want to, but it was literally barely hanging on…)
I just got a new G4 transmitter and receiver and I noticed the problems happening right after I started them up.
Is it just the extra hormones and crap (23 weeks right now) that makes this mess up so much? I have never really gotten the perfect matching numbers that other people have on a consistent basis, so I don’t particularly think that’s the case, although all the hormones could be making it worse?
Is it the baby aspirin that I’m on every day? Don’t think that’s the case either, because as I mentioned, my last sensor worked well the second week, and horribly the first week. Unless the baby aspirin delays…something? Somehow? I have no idea.
Or is Dexcom trying to phase us G4 users out and force us to upgrade to the G6? I would not mind upgrading, honestly, even though based on my past experience, I highly doubt it would be as accurate for me, even with all the hype & hoopla. The auto-inserter looks pretty neato.
Orrrrrrr could it be a little bit of each of the above?
Orrrr am I sounding crazy here?? (I tell you, its the hormones!)
