Dexcom6 Glucose Monitor

Dexcom6 Glucose Monitor

Good morning to all. Here is an update on my monitor. The first one worked great.
The second one didn't work. The company said it was defective and would send another. I never received it.
The next one kept giving low readings, all night and day. I'm waiting for Dr. office to call with further direction.
My numbers went down significantly with the one that worked. It was so helpful for me in tracking carbs.
Hopefully this will all be resolved.
Good day to all.

Need Advice

Need Advice

Hello! I have Type 2 Diabetes and I'm trying to control my blood sugars and lose weight. I lost 12 pounds so far on a weight loss program my insurance set me up with, but it counts calories and not carbs and my doctor wants me to do low-carb.

I need help on finding a meal plan that I can easily follow. I spoke to a dietician who… read more
