i finally found a great spot to insert my dexcom sensor. around my hip on my back. i do this like i am a contortionist. but it it seems to be the most comfortable and most accurate
yesterday evening, my sensor fell off. i had to put on an entirely new sensor, similar spot. my readings (#s) were off by more than the recommended allowance for both HIGH and LOW.
i called Tech Support and they told me that w/in the first 24 hours or so, the dex readings sometimes need a chance to calibrate properly. so, here it is, the next morning around 10am, and i am having the same problem. and even when i recalibrate the proper BG, my dex reads inaccurately. as well, after all these re-calibrations, my direction arrow disappeared.
well, the direction arrow just came back on. PHEW.
do i leave the dexcom sensor on for the rest of the day to see if it works itself out, or do i change it and start all over again?
I need as much help as possible. anyone out there have this problem or know about these things? Dexcom is sending me a replacement sensor, so its not about the money of replacing it. its really just the not knowing along w/ the inconvenience.
