The last 10 days I have hardly slept at all. The alarms on my sensor/transmitter have been non stop. I get warm up, BG meter now, cal error, just to mention a few. called medtronic and talked to 5 different people all with different advice. Some said the insertion is wrong,some said the sensor was bad, some said I needed a new transmitter, some said the sight was bad. Frustrated, confused, and now angry. I have had Diabetes 50+ years and been on a pump for 11 years.Due to my many lows at work-( I teach kindergarten) we opted for the CGM. I have had the CGM for 9 months with no problems. Any thoughts out there would be welcomed.
