I used to use two different G4 transmitters & sensors to avoid the 2-hour gap with a new sensor (thanks to a tudiabetes user’s suggestion
I no longer do this with the G6 (mostly because there is no double-testing required at the end of the 2-hour gap), but I do have terrible first night false-lows with the G6 (as many have reported).
So I read about soaking and it makes sense to me when trying to extend a sensor, but I don’t understand how it works for a new sensor.
If I insert a new sensor 24 hours before I need it and put in an old transmitter (until I take out my current transmitter 24 hours later when that sensor dies) then how do I get the old transmitter out of my new sensor’s case? I’ve never been able to remove them without bending half the casing (like we are supposed to)!
I know I must be missing something, and I did see some say they just put a band-aid to cover it, but since many people mentioned using dead transmitters… I figured I’d start a new post (in case others are confused as well).
