Although I’ve said I have had great success with the G6, I’ve had a couple quirky experiences in a row this weekend and am curious @TiaG if you guys have seen this?
I replaced my sensor yesterday, waited for the two hour warmup, and was surprised to get a “enter two calibrations” message! Isn’t the whole point of the G6 that it doesn’t require that?
I entered the calibrations, because it wouldn’t give me readings without them, and as the day went on it was never close to accurate (it read LOW for a half hour after a jimmy johns sandwich…trust me that I wasn’t low after that!!). It kept missing readings, had a couple sensor errors, and was all around unusable.
By midnight it was hurting a little, I’d had a couple drinks and was feeling feisty so I took the dang thing off and started over. Hoped to wake up to a fully functioning new sensor. Nope. Calibrations required again!! So weird. I wouldn’t mind the calibrations if it worked, but I had three sensor errors in just a few hours this morning!
I called Dexcom and was told about the calibrations that “it can happen” if it needs additional input and might be because I inserted it into a lean area (most of mine go in lean areas). They were both tender/uncomfortable and one bled a little, so that may be part of the issue.
Anyway, they are replacing both and I’m a half hour into the warmup of my third one since yesterday. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this one just works like it’s supposed to.
Just sharing since I had googled this morning and couldn’t find any posts anywhere about a G6 requiring calibrations. Maybe I’m the only one?
