o I just got a CGM on Monday and so far I have been through 2 sensors and one sleepless night.
The problem is it kept on saying I was low when I was 5 or 4 and buzzing 5 times between 1.30 and 4. It then refused to accept my calibration I snoozed it for 2 hours and it rejected the next calibration and that was the end of the sensor.
So the next morning I put in another disabled a lot of the alarms and called meditronic who said they'd send me a new sensor. I was very careful about only calibrating when it wanted me to even when my reading was different until it called for the next one when it said I was hypo and my meter and body said not. It rejected it. So I ignored it ate supper, waited an hour and tried again and it rejected the 2nd reading and bang went the sensor. :mad: Another conversation with meditronic who talked me through all the options agreed I'd followed the book then suggested I did some complicated equation with ISIG which I didn't understand.
I'm wondering if the reason it doesn't work for me is because it's based on an algorithm of how newer insulins should work and I use animal insulin (porcine) which acts more slowly. The rep claimed he thought that might happen when I was given it but he said the same about the pump and I knew that wasn't and isn't right.
