My sensor just lasted 25 days!
I did not mean to let it go that long, but the sensor was doing so well I just let it be! 25 days it lived on my left thigh....we hung out by the fire, went skiing in Quebec and out on the town in Halifax....this sensor saw a good life!
The accuracy was great the whole life of the sensor. I changed the tape every couple of days and kept a close eye on the skin and the sensor. There was no blood when I inserted this sensor - that helped the longevity.
25 days is a longer then normal time. I'll be honest, I was a little nervous when I pulled off the sensor yesterday. I did not know what to expect.....the skin looked similar to when you remove an infusion set, a red bump - but the skin under the tape was dry and will need moisturizer for a few days!
I have a new sidekick, a new sensor on the right thigh.....we're getting to know each other quite well now!
