I’ve been reading other CGMS users (Minimed and Navigator) on a Yahoo CGMS board talking about inserting their sensor on leg, arms, upper buttocks, etc. So far I’ve only used abdomen (even going as high as 2 inches below my boobs but above belly button) and also used the area below my belly button/below waistband.
I was curious where other Dexcom 7+ users inserted their sensors? Have you been successful with your legs, arms or upper buttocks (bum)? (and sorry, I really don’t know the nice way to say buttocks or bum, so please forgive me)
With how big the transmitters are on Minimed and Navigator, I was amazed that those users had good luck with their legs. I could see putting a Dexcom sensor on a leg but I’ve been too afraid to try it out.
Is there a spot that a sensor just hasn’t worked so well for you?
