I wanted to find out if anyone else has a recurring problem with the Minimed CGM with lost sensors and weak signals. I tend to get them on a regular basis, particularly after the sensor has been on for about 36 hours. Sometimes, it seems as though it is the placement of the sensor/transmitter and the location of the pump to receive the transmission.
I wear the pump on my belt and have the sensor/transmitter on my upper thigh and it seems that there is a higher recurrence of lost sensors and weak signals if they are on opposite sides (sometimes necessary depending on where the infusion site is at the moment). Also, if I am asleep and am lying on the sensor/transmitter.
Does anyone have similar problems if there is too much body or distance between the sensor/transmitter and the pump? Seems to me that the transmitter should have enough range to get around the body.
