      That just plain sucks :( I completely understand though, no way would I put my child through pain for something that does not work. It makes me sad though, I really wish I could help in some way :(

      If I remember correctly I had to call 3 days in a row. Basically I called them every single time we would get a weak signal/lost sensor in that 3 day period. Every single time I called I asked them to replace the transmitter. If they give "suggestions" just tell them you have already done that. They don't know that you haven't inserted while he is standing :( I would push this one. As long as it is still under warranty if you push it they will eventually replace it. Tell them you get the lost signal from a foot away unobstructed, tell them how many times a day it happens, and if they don't want to listed hang up and call back. There is just no way that your transmitter is fine!

      I can't remember how old your transmitter is. I am pretty sure you are under 6 months??? IF so then I would call the hotline again. Tell them that you know the test was good but that this is an issue a friend of yours had and it ended up being a problem with the transmitter not getting a strong enough signal. The rep I talked to had me place it 2 feet unobstructed from the pump and it would lose signal at 4 feet unobstructed. This was all on the hotline. Tell them it is not working and if they are not willing to replace the transmitter you will be putting a call into Navigator or Dexcom and send your money to them.

      I am so sorry you are having trouble with the cgms :( Call MM and demand they replace it. At least that way you can rule out it being a transmitter problem. Ours passed the test with the tester thing but it still was not keeping a signal. We got the new one and only lost a signal when there was an obvious reason.
