Hope you are doing well! I saw that blog post about that scary low you had the other day-- sheesh!! I have been there after running, too, though! Yikes.
On your search for better tape, I think I mentioned before that I used the CGM for a very brief period of time this past summer, but had trouble with the underlying adhesive. Well, I told my mom about my gripes with it, and she got me a bunch of prep pads and random samples of tape (she’s a nurse and a CDE!). I still have some left over, and I doubt I will need it any time soon, so drop me an email if you want me to mail a little collection to you. I have a big variety of prep pads (do you want to try any of those? Or are you sure it’s the tape?), and a few types of tape. I think I also called Medtronic and told them that I was disappointed in the adhesive, and they also sent me a “tape kit” or something. Or maybe it was a prep kit. I can’t remember, and I can’t seem to find it in my closet full of supplies (but I might still have it). Anyway, let me know if you want me to send you any of the samples!
