I have worn it since noon yesterday and can barely feel it on the back of my upper right arm. The insertion was quick and not at all painful. The 10-hour warm-up period with each new sensor is annoying, but since it’s not uncomfortable to wear, I can accept it.
Before bed, I caught that I was dropping from a correction bolus much faster than anticipated, so I ate a 30g snack and stayed stable all through the night. I can’t wait to see how the rest of my first full day goes today!
