Last week my Dexcom gave me the low transmitter battery alert. I quickly put in an order for a new one, but I'm still waiting for the diabetes supply company, my endo, and the insurance to process everything. I'll also be getting a new receiver since my old one is out of warranty. It's still going strong though so I'll keep using it until it dies. I can't believe it's lasted me 2 years already with no problems! :) I've been really blessed, and I've done my best to take really good care of it. Guess that means my hard work has paid off.
I hope to have my new transmitter before we leave on vacation next weekend. I really hate to be without it. Thankfully, my low carb lifestyle means I don't have to worry as much about highs and lows all over the place. I feel completely confident in my ability to keep my blood sugars stabilized. I just like having the extra constant "vision" my Dexcom gives me. It makes things so much easier.
