Sorry guys, but you won’t be of much help to me here…
I’m so excited, because it looks like my insurance is finally on board for a CGM!!!
I have a Tslim X2, which generally lives in my cleavage 24/7. It’s just the most convenient location for me because it’s always easy to access, reaches all points I might place an infusion set, easily clips to a bra or tank top, and tucks discreetly away. I’ve not used any other location since the new/slimmer cases came out.
My concern is that I’ve read a lot about the weak communication between Tslim and dexcom, and that they need to be on the same side of the body. I’m looking for feedback from other ladies who keep the pump in their cleavage. I know the signal doesn’t transmit through an entire body well, but can it handle just the volume of a breast? Say, the dexcom is on a arm and the Tslim is centrally located between bra cups, will that block signal? Does it matter which direction the pump is orientated? I usually have the touchscreen pressed flat against my skin on the inside of the bra, and the clip hooked over the outside.
I’m not very good with change, especially when I like things a certain way. As happy as I am over the prospect of a Dex, I’ll be really bummed if I have to get used to a new location for the pump.
