I have been on Dexcom Seven Plus since early March 2009, and then I found out that it was
just released in Feb 2009.
Its accuracy amazes me.
Dexcom 7+'s readings could be just 1 or 2 points from my real meter readings for days.
I’m now going through my 5th sensor. It has constantly and
accurately alarmed me of lows of 70, which is set by me, and same with hyper.
I can’t even believe it after going through MM’s CGM and MM’s wild readings from
meter’s. MM CGM simply does not work.
Also Dexcom’s sensor needle size is so tiny that you
can feel nothing during insertion and the rest 10-14 days in secure snug place.
You can calibrate Dexcom anytime you want. Yes.
Dexcom has been FDA approved for 7 days. I often use it longer than a week.
During the first day, Dexcom seems to get to know your body glucose level, after that,
it knows you so intimately that it offers very accurate readings. So I tend to use up
the same old one longer. The insertion or the site never bothers you. I do have one sensor
that gave up early at 5th day of use.
Dexcom 7+ has improved accuracy, longer life, more flexible alarms, and improved software features. I haven’t used any of older versions of Dexcom, which I heard had lots of issues
with other CGMs in terms of accuracy. I had thought every CGMs was a dumb.
But not this Dexcom 7+ !!!
Dexcom gives you 30 days to try with a full refund.
