For the past 8 weeks, I put each company’s latest system, the Dexcom G4 and Medtronic 530G with Enlite, to a head-to-head test.  Other than wearing the sensors longer than the “approved” number of days, I pretty much followed all of the rules and recommendations that each company provides to users.  Simultaneous calibrations were performed three or four times daily prior to meals, when glucose levels were in a relatively steady state.  The sensors were stored properly and placed in appropriate/adjacent sites, and the sites were rotated consistently.   Extra adhesive was applied over the sensors at the first sign of loosening.  Transmitters and receivers were charged as needed.

Sensor Insertion & Comfort:
Both systems now use very thin introducer needles and automated insertion devices.  Enlite inserts at a 90-degree angle and is much easier to insert and more comfortable than Medtronic’s previous Sof-Sensors.
Edge:  EVEN

Sensor Longevity:
With a little ingenuity (and a lot of tape), both sensors can work well past their initial life-cycle.  Based on my personal experience and that of my clients, I have found that the Enlite sensors last an average of 8-10 days; G4 lasts an average of 12-14.
Edge:  DEXCOM
