I called Dexcom today and was told what everyone said here that it was static. I’m not totally convinced but she indicated that it could be static in my pocket unrelated to the humidity in the air. She did recommend that I start using the case instead of the gel skin. So I followed your instructions and used a seam ripper to take the clip off the case. Very easy except that I somehow cut my finger while doing it. Oh well, what’s a little more blood to someone with Type 1?
I actually find this case much easier for putting the Dex in and out of my pocket. The only thing that I don’t like about it is how the plastic case screen sticks to the Dex with a lot of blobs that look like there is moisture in there. Does Melissa’s case do that also?
I’m also doing something that might be considered neurotic, but works very well. I’m very worried about losing the Dex receiver with it falling out of my pocket. Many of my pockets aren’t as deep as I’d like, but it’s hard to find good pockets in women’s clothing. Right now I have the tubing for my pump going through the belt loop part of the Dex case. It really works quite well and is another advantage of tubed pumps. You’re not going to lose your pump (or Dex) if it’s attached to you.
My pockets are definitely very full with a phone, pump, Dex receiver, glucose tabs, and car keys. I really like cargo style pants and shorts, but I’m not allowed to wear them at work.
Thanks Mary and everyone else for the advice.
