Mine doesn’t come off. I just hit end session and then hit warm up again. I do 2 calibrations after 2 hour warm up. Good to go!
Yeah same here. That's what I do.
I don’t take my transmitter off, and I’m not sure what ones don’t come off. I just hit end and start, I find it difficult to remove sometimes and take it off with the sensor, and then get it off the top.
I have trouble with connectivity after 7 days (which has been kinda frustrating), even after hit End Session and do the 2 hour warm up again. Does anyone else have this problem? I'm fairly new to the Dex so I could just be getting used to it, too.
It depends how old the transmitter is.. if it’s towards the end of its life then sometimes. Make sure you are injecting it into area where there is some fat.
it's only a month old. I've been wearing it in my abdomen but i just put it in my arm for the first time so we'll see how this time around goes...thanks!
I turn off the sensor and a minute later turn it back on..on average it last me close to three weeks.
I can make mine last 2 to 3 weeks. Have no idea how you would reinsert. I just turn off sensor for a minute and then turn it back on.
She means the part that clips into the sensor, the part that lasts 3 months.
Your right, that is exactly what she said. (No coffee yet
me either! Too much trouble, I just start and stop on my phone
I don't wait. I simply turn off sensor, then immediately start it again. I routinely get 3 weeks out of each sensor.
Nope. I turn off sensor, turn on sensor, and calibrate in 2 hrs.
Same here, restart after and recalibrate at the end of the 7 day session. My question is I feel the site were my dexcom is gets more sensitive has time goes by. Especial after maybe 10-12 days? Feels like a bruise.
My skin gets so mad and sensitive about day 9.
I also cannot go longer then 14 days and sometimes have a little bruise or raised area.
Just stop n restart no need to wait few minute
Thanks guys! It seems to be working just fine so far.
Stop n restart
I do not use dexcom but I use the guardian of the 670 and once they expire 6 days I recharge the transmitter and reconnect it so it lasts another 6 days as if it were a new one
I'm on week 8 with my currents sensor in my upper abdomen. Usually I use the back of my arm, but I often end up dislodging accidentally.
I can’t seem to make one last more than 2-3 restarts (weeks) however I never take out the transmitter, just stop and restart the sensor
I just restart my Dex.
I tried to go longer than 7 days, but my body is ready for it to come out. Any suggestions?
This is my first time doing it, but I don’t really intend to make it a habit. I always change it Saturday mornings, but my last one was too close to a nerve and by Tuesday it was so painful I had to remove it. I put on a new one and am wearing it longer to make up for it. I hate going without.
Anzora, Dexcom will replace it if you've had it in less than a week.
huddleston even if it wasn’t a defective product? It was just my placement.
Yes, I would call them. I had one once that was painful and it was replaced.
Just stop then start. If you try to take it off you're more likely to damage the sensor wire
I stopped extending....change every seven. My skin was getting lumps.
