CCS Medical - Problems with Dex Com G6 device

The receiver for my G6 glucose monitor fails to work several times per day, indicating problems with the sensor or receiver. The reason I obtained a Dex Com G6 was to eliminate the use of my glucose meter most of the time. Now, I am prompted to use my meter more often than I did before I had the G6. Thus, the G6 is of little use in avoiding finger sticks. Besides that, I may not be receiving test strips now that I have the G6.

User's recommendation: Avoid the G6 is you want to avoid finger sticks.

Complaint about DEXCOM, not CCS Medical.

As a G6 user, I share your grief. Be aware that all CGMs are sensitive to the WiFi environment because they operate in close range to those frequencies.

Because the FCC clauses interference acceptance as the norm for these devices, we are all between a rock and a hard place. I find that using my Ipad is notorious for causing disconnection.
