Previously on A Consequence of Hypoglycemia:
First things first, the transmitter. By Odin’s Beard, this thing is huge.
Now for a dose of context:
When you hear people talk about the size of the G4 (pictured left) transmitter compared to the Seven Plus (pictured right), I think it’s important to put things in proper context and understand what we’re talking about.
2 pennies. That’s what this is about.
On one hand, 2 pennies is not that big of a deal. But when you’re wearing those 2 pennies, on top of the 4 that you already signed up for, it’s a big deal. It’s incredible to think that something this small, while not insignificant, makes all the difference in how this device can be perceived.
And if we – the users, the people with diabetes, the customers – spend this much time focusing on the size of the transmitter, how heated were the conversations at Dexcom HQ?

Every little bit matters, you are correct.
Crazy to think that something that feels SO much bigger is only two pennies… Wow!
