Algemeen

Algemene tips voor loopen met G6

  • Recent transmitters are called Firefly. Sensors cannot be restarted without removing the transmitter, which itself cannot be reset, they also do not generate raw data.

  • If you are restarting sensors, ensure you are ready to calibrate and keep an eye on variation.

  • Het zogenaamde “Pre-soaking” (de sensor alvast inbrengen, waarna je nog wacht met starten) van de G6 met kalibratiecode zal hoogstwaarschijnlijk leiden tot onnauwkeurigheden in je glucosewaardes na starten. Omdat het algoritme van de G6 rekent op weefselbeschadiging na inbrengen, terwijl je met Pre-soaken niet dezelfde mate van weefselbeschadiging zult hebben op het moment dat je de sensor start. Wanneer je Pre-soakt is het waarschijnlijk het beste om de sensor te kalibreren.

Dexcom G6 met xDrip+

  • If you are using a recent (Firefly) transmitter, preemptive restarts are ignored.

  • If you are using a modded transmitter you do not need to use preemptive restarts.

  • If you are using an old rebatteried transmitter, the safest thing to do is disable preemptive restarts. Though, in this case you will have to use the G6 in non-native mode (which is unadvisable as it disables factory calibration and doesn’t filter noisy readings), or else the sensor will stop after 10 days.

  • De Dexcom G6 zender kan gelijktijdig worden gekoppeld aan de Dexcom ontvanger (of als alternatief de t:slim pomp) en een app op je telefoon.

  • When using xDrip+ as receiver uninstall the Dexcom app first. You cannot connect xDrip+ and Dexcom app with the transmitter at the same time!

  • If you need Clarity and want to profit from xDrip+ alarms use the BYODA with local broadcast to xDrip+. You can also use xDrip+ as a companion app of the official Dexcom app, but you might experience delays in BG readings.

  • If not already set up, download xDrip+ and follow the instructions on xDrip+ settings page.

  • Select xDrip+ in in ConfigBuilder, BG Source.

  • Adjust settings in xDrip+ according to xDrip+ settings page

Wanneer je de G6 gebruikt met de Bouw Je Eigen Dexcom App

BYODA broadcast options

  • This app lets you use your Dexcom G6 with any Android smartphone.

  • Uninstall the original Dexcom app or patched Dexcom app if you used one of those previously (do not stop the currently running sensor)

  • Install the downloaded apk

  • Enter sensor code and transmitter serial no. in patched app.

  • In phone settings go to apps > Dexcom G6 > permissions > additional permissions and press ‘Access Dexcom app’.

  • After short time BYODA should pick-up transmitter signal.

Settings for AAPS

  • Select ‘Dexcom App (patched)’ in in ConfigBuilder, BG Source.

  • If you don’t receive any values select any other data source, then re-select ‘Dexcom App (patched)’ to trigger the demand for permissions to establish the connection between AAPS and BYODA-broadcast.

Instellingen voor xDrip+

  • Select ‘640G/Eversense’ as data source.

  • Command ‘start sensor’ must be performed in xDrip+ in order to receive values. This will not affect your current sensor controlled by Build Your Own Dexcom App.

Nieuwe zender met lopende sensor

If you happen to change transmitter during a running sensor session you might try to remove the transmitter without damaging the sensor mount. A video can be found here. If you opt for this solution instead, you must be careful to avoid damaging sensor contacts with the strip.
