What have people’s experiences been with the “Transmitter Expiring” alert for the Dexcom G6?
I have now been on the Tandem tslim and Dexcom G6 for about a year now and for the FIRST time I received an alert saying the “Transmitter Expiring in 23 days.” In the past I have always kept my own records to keep track of 90 days from the time I first used a new transmitter. I always heard I should receive such an alert but have not until just recently. Perhaps this was due to updating the software in my Tandem.
If you have received these messages before do you find them to be accurate? Do you use a new transmitter when you are changing your sensor 10 days prior to the day the alert is reporting expiring OR will you continue using the transmitter if you are scheduled to change your sensor a few days prior to it expiring? For example, if you installing a new sensor today and you had received an alert saying your transmitter will expire 8 days from now, will you push it and wait to install a new transmitter ?
I am trying to maximum the days I use a transmitter having to pay for it out of pocket.
I look forward to hearing your experiences.
