Thread: Medtronic CGMS giving problems

    Default Medtronic CGMS giving problems

    Hi all, I wonder if any of you have had this problem. When I insert sensor, it warms up as normal for two hours but then several hours later it warms up again. Could the transmitter be faulty? I live in South Africa and my 11 year old daughter is on the insulin pump. Am not sure how many of you use the CGMS, but would love to hear from you if you have also experienced problems with it.

    It is so frustrating. My daughter is also using the libre, and while I find that accurate and great it doesn't prevent the lows like the CGMS does. Going crazy trying to sort it out and get it working as it should!!

    We had similar problems the year my daughter wore the Medtronic cgm. We'd had a great six weeks, and then six weeks of what you described daily. It was a real hassle to get Medtronic to send a new transmitter (I wasn't taping carefully so the sensor was wicking in and out of the interstatial fluid was their line.) When the new transmitter arrived, the problems ceased immediately.

    I so do not miss dealing with Medtronic customer service!

    Thanks you so much for responding. I am hoping to get a new transmitter as soon as possible. It is driving me nuts. What are you using now out of interest, and do you find it works better?

    We switched to the Dexcom G4 as soon as it was released in the US. It is so much better, in our opinion, for multiple reasons.

    The Libre sounds interesting to me, although it's not available here. It wouldn't be an option, though, without alarms. My kid doesn't wake to lows. She's not great waking to alarms, either, but better & we're working on it.
