I wear the Dexcom G4 and it is linked to my Animas Vibe. Dexcom just sent me the G5 transmitters rather than the G4 and when I called to exchange them I was told I could just use the app with the G5 if I wanted to keep them and make that change. I was considering doing that but just looked at the app and the reviews are horrible! Most of the complaints are about the lack of a mute option with the latest update though, so I can’t get a good read on how the app is in general.
Can anyone give me some tips? Let me know what you use and what you think.
I’m happy with the G4 and like that it ‘talks’ to my pump so I don’t HAVE to have anything else with me. But I like the idea of using an app and updating to the G5. I assume that would mean I’ll always have to have my phone with me though, correct? I usually do but don’t love the idea of it being a necessity. I’m a stay-at-home mom, so the lack of a mute button isn’t a big deal for me if that’s the only complaint with the app at this point.
Thanks for any information you can provide!!
