Second of three G6 sensors used so far have quit working on 8th day; 66% is not a good product reliability average.
And, while talking with Dexcom’s Tech Support, the tech mentioned that the replacement being sent will be of the “newer” variety. Apparently, Dexcom makes three (!) G6 sensors - one for replacements, one for folks on Medicare, and the other for regular patients. Sure sounds like the sensors are distributed according to how good they deem the patient’s insurance coverage.
If the 8th-day failures continue, I’m going to suggest to Dexcom that a good chunk of the big bucks they’re spending pushing TV advertisements be redirected to R&D.
