Missing: Dexcom Receiver

Yesterday morning I had my Dexcom Receiver next to me on my computer desk.

I got up, went to get changed to take the dog for a walk and left without my receiver.

I came back and I could not find it.

30 hours later...I still can not find it.

It's in my house...but where? I am so stressed out over this. It's so important to me. I use it to maintain my health.

I woke up at 3:30 am with another one of my scary lows that I felt but only because I was 1.8 mmol/l (32 mg/dcl).My Dexcom was catching them when they were 4.0. I don't feel low until I am under 2 and that receiver was helping me so much.

I just need to find it. I have moved all of my furniture checked every crevice. Oh.

oh. oh. oh.

Can someone look with fresh eyes for me?


  1. Eek!! I hope you find it!! It couldn't have gone too far. Next time you are low, stand near your computer desk, maybe you'll hear it go off

  2. Oh No!
    Seems the only way I ever manage to find anything is to stop looking for it, haha. Or lose something else and start looking for it.
    Check the bathroom and bedroom (especially the bed) - those are where I see to lose many an odd thing! Maybe you subconsciously picked it up to take it with you...
    Good luck!

  3. Sorry you're missing this important piece of your life. We need a GPS device loaded into all of our devices. Maybe it's in a pocket somewhere? Good luck.

    Did you see that the dexcom G4 has been approved by health Canada? In adults only right now, but its a start!
