Hi all -
I have tried two of the Minimed CGMS systems because I have a Revel pump, but the calibration thing never worked despite working with a Minimed tech repeatedly. It was "cal error" hell. My CDE said I wasn't alone, that others had the same issue and that it was just our body chemistry. So now I'm trying the Dexcom, sounds like a much better-working system so I'm hopeful.
I just want to check because I'm not seeing anything in the literature about specific conditions when a sensor can be inserted. One thing I hated about the Minimed CGMS was the limited window of time you could start a sensor (not within two hours or a meal or exercise, if there was a full moon or if you're wearing purple, etc.). So I can insert a sensor anytime? Are there better times/conditions during the day that have worked better for anyone?
I live in a rural area with limited access to training, so I'm hoping you can help with this question.
