Tutorial Tuesday: How To Protect My Dexcom Screen

I know it’s been a bit since I posted a Tutorial Tuesday, but since starting on the Dexcom, the protective screen they ship it with was starting to peel off…and I felt like I should show you how I re-used the peel-off cover to cut out a new Zagg Invisible Shield for my Dexcom! Even if you don’t have that anymore, this will still work!  So here goes!

Tutorial Tuesday: Bayer Contour Next Link!

So, for the first part of  #TutorialTuesday now on curemoll, I wanted to post this picture, which is about the coolest thing I have ever discovered about my new tester (meter) the Bayer Contour Next Link. Tutorial Below!

image

  1. With meter off, double tap the power or menu button on the top [see the light icon on the picture] and the light will come on. It’s orange 
  2. Then, insert the strip.
  3. Wait for the meter to turn on and go through it’s menu.
  4. [To TURN OFF LIGHT:] simply double tap again. But it will go off when your meter goes off.

That’s it! So cool  right??!!

So, you might know, but I used to LOVE the Freestyle Lite meter because of the amazing light button and I was pretty attached to it…and my old meter that synced to my Medtronic Insulin Pump never had a light and I have always had so much trouble testing in the dark…[it’s hard to hold a flashlight or your phone and poke your finger at the same time] so when I discovered this, I was so excited I showed everyone I know and thought I should share it you!! :)

Let me know if this is helpful! It’ll be up on Pinterest and Instagram (@mj2molliej) too!
