Thanks, Steve, I'll do that.
Issues is not a word I would use when 3 of the sensors failed so quickly (24 hours, one hour and one hour) If I cant use them, I'm not pioneering anything. And its wasting my time, hanging about waiting for yet another delivery of a sensor when I have no clue what time it will arrive. I have spent this week in a state of wait. From the time of contact to tell them the sensor is a dud, to the emails or phonecalls, to the receipt of the new sensor, is 2-3 days. And then, it doesnt work.Sounds like the Libre was not useful enough for you to overcome its issues. I'm sure future Libre users, though, will appreciate your pioneering efforts.
I ordered an arm band which is designed to fit round the sensor, but its coming from the UK and is taking forever to get here. In the meantime... never heard of skin tac! Must look into that.Rats on losing the sensors. I use Dexcom and having pulled one out yet, but ironically this time switched to arm placement. They say to use on abdomen, like Libre says to use on arm, but so many Dexcom users like the arm that I thought I'd try. Have it on my forearm and so far (1 day!) so good.
Are there tapes that can secure it, or maybe using Skin Tac would help?
Glad to hear it's working well this time around and that you're getting great info!
Me too! The Libre doesnt alarm and it doesnt care what level you are at, it just reports it when you scan, and you just need to scan at least once in every 8 hours to get a continuous graph. I’m kinda glad, really because it would have been setting off something shocking. My last reading was 2 just a short time ago. That is insane. So I checked with a finger prick and its actually 4.5 which is fine. I’m having a couple of spoons of sugar in a cup of tea (and ewww I do not like it!), just to be sure.I have my dexcom range set at 3.9/70 low and 7.8/140 high but that's fluid. I've fiddled with it based on how much (or little) I wish to be annoyed, I mean alerted, with an alarm. Not sure how the Libre works, but I can change those settings at any time and see in the software how much I was in/out of range, so they really are only for my info/benefit.
Glad your armband has worked out so well! Woot!
I’m really struggling with it at the moment, staying above 3.9, because if I have insulin, it drops like a rock. I have NO idea whats going on, really. Maybe my pancreas is repairing itself (I know... unlikely)
 As an aside, I’m a scanning monster. Its a rare thing that I dont scan at least 8 times a day.
