So yesterday my new transmitter showed up and it was the new thinner profile one and I am SO HAPPY they brought out the thinner version! To me, it is much thinner and less noticeable. It actually took my Dexcom over an hour to realize I had a new transmitter because it kept showing out of range and the battery status said --- still. I was actually on hold with Dexcom tech support when it decided to start working. Go figure. :-)
Today is my first day wearing the new transmitter at work and it seems much thinner to me while I'm sitting in my office chair. I wear my sensors mostly on my lower sides above my waistband and I can typically feel it pushing into me, but today that sensation seems much less. It is thinner and also shaped a little differently. I will try to get a picture soon so you all can see it. Hopefully you all know by now that Dexcom did get the thinner transmitter approved and you will all get to enjoy it soon enough yourselves. Now we just wait for the G5 Dexcom release and hopefully when it is sent to a smartphone they make it Android compatible and not just iPhone (which is what I am hearing). I will not buy an iPhone (I refuse to pay their inflated phone prices), Ill just wait for the tslim/dexcom combo pump instead.
THANK YOU DEXCOM FOR THE THINNER PROFILE TRANSMITTER!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH I COULD HUG YOU!!!
Picture from another facebook user! Also these fit the current G4 sensor, so dont worry if you get a new transmitter your supply of sensors will still work. I was told it was made smaller by using one microchip instead of two, so the battery size is the same and still warranted for 6 months.
Here are some more pictures I took.
