Dexcom sensor just delivered and it's 5° outside


#1

A dexcom G6 was just delivered by FedEx and it’s only five degrees outside. Will the cold temp compromise the sensor?


#2

it’s supposed to be stored at no lower than 36 degrees, but I’m sure it’s like anything else–manufacturers are always conservative with specs. give it a try and see if it works. dexcom will replace stuff no matter the problem.

(If I were you I wouldn’t post this question in Type 2–try the Glucose Monitoring section)

I wouldn’t let it sit out there long. You can try them out and return if theres any problem. I have my sensors delivered to a PO Box, which is pretty inexpensive to maintain and also allows for secure mail delivery. It is -30 here today… I would not want them sitting outside in that for any period of time.
