Has anyone looked at the sensor carefully after removing it from their body? That looks like a gold conductor nested inside the plastic. I’ve kept all of my sensors after removal because the idea of tossing gold in the garbage seems a little wasteful to me. I realize the amount of gold in each sensor might be small, but as it appears I am going to be using these for quite some time, perhaps it will add up to a few hundred bucks every year or couple of years. I’m assuming the gold is what makes the sensor so expensive in the first place, as it has no electronics or moving parts.
On a completely unrelated note, why the hell is there a picture of a woman eating a huge slice of carrot cake on the side of the Sof-Sensor box? I don’t know about the rest of you, but the first thing I thought of when I started with the CGMS was not that I was now empowered to feast upon cake!
