Re: [IP] Dex in arm (was Dex 7+ vs G4)

Here is a video on YouTube that I found that might help see how this is 
done, she makes it look easy.  It says it's - "Dexcom Arm Sites: A 
Tutorial".  I have never tried this but one of these days I might get up the 
nerve and see if I can.

I haven't really compared, since I long ago settled on using my arms for my
7+ and just continued to do so with the G4.  Putting it on the upper arm my
yourself really isn't that difficult, although it does take a bit of
practice.  (It actually seems a bit easier to manage with the G4, but I'm
not sure if there's actually any difference in releasing the inserter, or
if it's just a matter of being used to it)
