Has anyone tried using a 670g pump and a Dexcom G5 or G6? Do you have to use the G6 now, or can you choose between the G5 and G6?
I have a Minimed 670g, and I am tired of feeling like a beta-tester with the sensors. I get 1 bad day warming up, 3-4 good days, and then 2-3 bad days until it fails or hits the 7th day (rare). I don’t use auto mode because I don’t have a “normal” for it to adjust to. Last week, I felt funny when my CGM said that my BG was about 150, so I checked and my meter said 304. That was on day 5 of the sensor. It had been calibrated only about 3 hours earlier, so I said the heck with that, and changed it. Medtronic will replace it, as it had been getting worse over the previous day. But I’m sick of it, and I’m sick of having to talk every few weeks to Tech Support (very nice people, but it’s gotten really old).
My CDE says that I can change CGM systems if I want after the transmitter warranty has expired (soon). Any feedback on using a G6 (or G5) with a 670g?
