[IPp] RE: Dexcom



Sorry to contradict Shelley on this...

The Dexcom7 can now calibrated by any meter.. it no longer needs to upload
from a One Touch Ultra..

The Dexcom sensors actually last around 10 to 11 days (although guaranteed
for 7).. so costs are comparable.

I also wonder about the Navigator technology...why did it literally take
years to get FDA approval, yet the Dexcom got approval so quickly? Aren't
they now marketing a machine that the technology is already 4 years old?

The Dexcom receiver is very light and easy to carry around. The Dexcom
sensor is smaller and flatter and easier to wear.

The Dexcom is worn on the tummy not the arm and sensors are inserted at an
angle,

Dexcom is working with Animas to produce an integrated model.
