A sure sign that 23 days is far too long to wear a Dexcom sensor.
(But it was a new record!)

  4. Yowza! 23 days! We've gotten as many as 14. Sounds as though 23 might be record-setting within the DOC!

  5. I only made it 8 days on our first try and it was wonky as all get out. I need some lessons from you guys!

  7. Hey Pearlsa! The last time I wore a sensor this long, I did have some issues with the skin being bright red and irritated under the adhesive. This time (at least, so far - just realized I haven't looked at my leg in several hours) it seems to have been okay. *shrugs*

  9. Harry's went for 23 days one time, too!! We were so excited. Many times it is right on at the end of the second week and into the third week. He is on Medicare and they don't recognize the need for a sensor so we pay for everything. How sad they they don't realize that the Dexcom is saving them from the expense of an ambulance and an emergency room visit. We keep hoping that it will change.
