I’m not pumping yet, so it’s just the Dex. I’ve had pretty good luck keeping it on by first scrubbing well, giving the area two light layers of Skin Prep, and then cutting appropriate size pieces of Opsite-Flexifix and applying them to all four sides of the sensor. Even with heavy sweating it stays intact almost 2 weeks. It’s also important to be really careful when you smooth out the sensor’s tape, avoiding any folds or bumps that could let in moisture.
I have turned off my high alarm and just use the low alarm (at 60). There is a point in class (after we go thru along of intense standing poses) that I check it and assess whether I need to take some glucose.It usually doesn’t take much cause my breakfast insulin is pretty much out of there by then. BTW, I have discovered Clif Shot Blocks as the perfect substance to take to class. They are gummy (not dry like glucose tabs), come in some decent flavors, and are very fast acting. 3 pieces has 24 carbs…I usually don’t need more than one to get me back where I need to be.
