So I JUST ran out of my previous sensors (the sofsensors) and was getting excellent accuracy with them on the 530, but simply wanted to burn through my old supply before starting on the enlites.
My test sensor (the one free with the 530) only lasted for 5 days, and my first official fresh from the box enlite has again crapped out on day 5.
This is what I was afraid of with the smaller area of the testing surface that is below the skin (more comfy to insert, but I wonder if this is going to be a shorter lasting product).
Does anyone have any advice or experience? Am I able to call Medtronic on this and ask for replacements that don't last 6 days?
Does anyone have any experience with how to go about this. I'm on day 5 and I really don't want to wait until the morning without putting in a new sensor before calling, just to justify to them that it died while 5 days 3 hours in.
This also raises the question that I was fearing...If this short time frame of use continues, will I be allowed to purchase more sofsensors instead of inferior and more expensive enlites when I now own the 530, and not a revel?
I get 9 days minimum from sofsensors, and usually considerably more.
So far, these enlites cost twice as much for half the usage time. :(
Oh also to note...The accuracy of these, so far has been worse than the sofsensors. It started veering from real BG results on day 4. I imagine the result of the isig falling while I was in actual fact higher than stated.
