    I know this has been discussed before but I'm not good at searching. Is it ok to put the dexcom reciever thru the tsa xray machine with your carryon luggage?

    Alex is flying home on Thurs and we can't remember.

    Not the official answer, but I'm pretty sure we have on several occasions. Just like we put cell phones and other small electronics through the scanner.

    I think the official answer from the company is "no" however my receiver went though and it was fine... as well as my meter and back-up meter. Later in that same trip I had to have x-rays taken of my arm (the one with the sensor on) and the sensor and transmitter got x-rayed and it was still just fine (as was my arm) :)

    Thanks! I emailed dexcom and they say it is fine.
