I have had strange sensor/transmitter resets over the past week. Very strange! Everything would be going fine .... then all the sudden my sensor reads "weak signal" and soon after shows the 3hr restart screen. 1 hour later a calibration, and the sensor is back online. This was happening at a more frequent rate as the sensor age increased. I called Minimed, they really had no idea. I pulled the sensor yesterday and so far all is good.
Every time this strange reset occurred I was in different places, so I have nothing specific to blame it on. Once I was on the beach, another time at work .... once driving in the car. I blame it on the age of the sensor. With all the other sensors I knew they had lived their lifespan when the readings were "off". This last sensor never stopped being accurate, it just had sporatic connection issues! It was hard to pull this sensor that was still accurate - but I was getting tired of this reset every 4 - 8 hours!! No thanks!!
All is well, I have a new little buddy on my left thigh who is loving her new life. We hope for a long and healthy relationship!
Side note, check out Allison's page Lemonade Life, she has a short survey on the idea for a conference specifically for Type-1 diabetes!! It is about time ..... this survey has good questions and I hope the result is an excellent conference!! I would travel from Nova Scotia for sure....anyone need a ride along the way? HA!!
