Event Description
I have type 1 diabetes and use dexcom g6 cgm device to monitor sugars. Users change their sensor every ten days. I've noticed and complained to dexcom that within 48 hours of expiration, the sensor often does not transmit data. On this instance, the sensor was intermittently transmitting. It erroneously indicated i had a bg of 51. I acted to treat the low bg. Then, about 45 minutes later, i got another low alert and treated again. I started to feel poorly like i had high glucose. I tested with a finger stick and the finger stick revealed a difference of 150 points between what the sensor measured and what i measured with a finger stick. If i had not caught this when i did, i could have ended up in dka and in the er. The cgm was reading 51 mg/dl and my actual blood glucose was 273 mg/dl. Fda safety report id # (b)(4).
