I use the Dexcom G6 and find it exceptionally reliable and accurate. I don’t do blood tests at all, unless between sensors. I’m very happy with this product.
I tried the Eversense 90 day sensor when it first came out and thought it was great. Thinking about trying the 180 day sensor but I too am tied to my Dexcom G6/Omnipod 5 combo for the time being.
I am very pleased with my Dexcom G6 (and Tandem X2 BIQ combo). Because I cannot safely use the glucose monitor covered by my insurance (the meter covered by my insurance has been shown time and time again to read higher than actual for those with chronic anemia) even if I had to pay out of pocket for the entire cost of my G6 I would. Prior to CGM I was a 15-20 a day fingerstick person – paying retail for test strips is more expensive than CGM>
G6 may be off first few hours inserted. Sometimes calibrate once. Then everything is smooth going for 10 days. Not sure what defects are calling for government interference
Freestyle Libre 2 is accurate, lasts for the full two weeks, and has good tech support. The one flaw, and it’s major, is it can only be placed on the outer upper arm, Lea it vulnerable to get knocked off and very uncomfortable for side sleepers. When I asked tech support they side that is the only site it can be placed. Period! I offered to try other places and track it. Nope!!!
I’ve used a DexCom CGM since the 3 series. It has greatly helped me understand the effects of certain foods. My husband appreciates that he doesn’t have to wake me up to check my blood sugar during the night.
I used the 660 and the 670 system from Minimed until almost 2 months ago. I love the dexcom compared to the guardian connect. It is more accurate, way less calibration and the pump results are astounding.
I’ve used Dexcom CGM’s continuously for the past 9 years, started with the CGM 4 now have the CGM 6. I considered changing to the Eversense just to see if any difference in accuracy but from what I’ve read it’s not as accurate as the Dexcom. I’m hoping the CGM 7 will improve accuracy for me since it’s going to have a shorter sensor catheter length which their tech folks told me will help accuracy for thin diabetics.

I use the very flawed Dexcom G6, They have outstanding customer support yet refuse to address the numerous flaws in their system. As their product, despite it’s flaws, has kept me alive I still support them and hope their refusal to address the flaws won’t lead to the FDA shutting them down.
