Hi Ashley @Agerard1, I don’t think that you, or more precisely your daughter is the only one with sensor problems - although your daughter’s failures appear way too frequent.I’ve seen others on here and on other sites with similar questions. Dexcom is aware too - they hear from you and Dexcom … The Dexcom G6 transmitter is just like the G5 transmitter in that Dexcom artificially kills the transmitter by 112 days of use after first activation. I tried the G5 … I was wondering if anyone had experienced any issues with the dexcom G6 giving them inaccurate readings? I never lose signal during the day, but for some reason the past two nights I’ve lost it for pretty much the whole night. Still wouldn’t match. I put a G6 sensor in on Friday and it was immediately wrong by 5 points. Using Tandem Control IQ, which seems to make it worse.

The first sensor was placed at the diabetic Ed office and lasted almost the full 10 days. If you’d like to use the transmitter beyond the 112 days, and instead use the transmitter until the end of its battery life, you can use the same process described in my G5 … I corrected.
