Early on in using Ronnie's medtronic minimed pump and enlight CGM sensors we just could not get reliable bg readings. I remember one CGM reading was 45 and an alarm was signaling low. I got out our countournext meter and lo....., His BG was 135. Over and over again I called......... Well never mind. Anyway we discontinued using the sensors and just kept testing BG up to 11 time daily. Now Ronnie is eligable for a new pump and we plan on using the Latest Tandem and dexcom CGM. I am assuming that body chemistry and seizure medication was the problem with the Enlight sensors and Ronnie's isssues. I see that the dexcom sensors have some sort of acetomenophen blocker or some such ingreidient. Ronnie does not use acetomenophen but I thought the Lamictal he takes for seizures is similarly incompatible. Has anyone got some input on the dexcom CGM and Compatiblity with medications taken daily.
