Does anyone have any experience with swimming and wearing the DexCom 7 Plus sensor? The documentation says it is waterproof for up to 30 minutes. The last thing I want to do is blow out the sensor when I take clients on a field trip next week. We are going to a park with a pool and a lake and I have been told that the staff need to be with the clients at all times. My coworkers have decided I need to be in the water with them as I am the only one who is willing to wear a bathing suit (my coworkers are chicken to wear swim suits I guess).
I know I have to keep the receiver away from the water but how long can I stay in the water? Should I just take the sensor off? I would hate to do that as I will be on the 7th day on the sensor and I usually can get 12 to 14 days out of a sensor…I figure that taping it up to try to cover it won’t really make it waterproof and then I have a ton of peeling tape on me. I appreciate any feedback you can offer
