I’ve just started on the dexcom, and while i’m considering a pump, i haven’t got one yet.
Even with my pump it’s annoying enough that I basically have stopped using the Dex recording capabilities because they’re so not useful until download. It drives my endo crazy because she wants to see them in the download but I don’t have time to be playing with something that isn’t going to be useful until the end of the week (or month) when I get around to downloading it. If anyone’s figured out a way around this problem please let us know but right now I consider it one of the biggest flaws in the Dexcom system.
I haven’t figured out a way to see the events without downloading either. I especially don’t line logging exercise because I have to put in the duration when I start. Many time the actual duration is not what I anticipate it will be.
If I’m using the logging feature (which is almost never) then I’ll enter the exercise after I’m done. You can change the start time when entering events so I just back it up to whenever I started, then enter the duration and intensity of exercise I actually did. It takes a little longer but it is more accurate.
I didn’t know that you could change the start time. I just looked in my seven plus users guide and saw the magic Edit button. Thank you. Isn’t this forum great? I am always learning something new!
