Tandem t:Slim x2.
Although the documentation for sets, cartridges, Dexcom G6 sensor have defined times frames to be changed at defined intervals, in pursuit of financial savings, are users religiously following those guidelines?
It was a shock to me that t:slim cart with Humulog insulin is 48hrs.
That is a very short timeframe to have to replace a cartridge!
(I realize there is an element of “legal declaration, protect the company” statement about the use of the product, even though the product will be effective longer that 48hrs); it’s a CYA statement.
Of course I am eager to get the lowest cost of use for the technology, without jeopardizing my numbers using product that should have been changed out 2, 4, 19 days ago!
I see lots of effort to extend the G6 Sensor beyond the 10days.
What are people finding in terms of reuse (cartridges), or extending use of G6 sensors beyond the recommended time frame and maintaining their best control? I’m 17units away before my 1st cartridge is depleted, and looking for some user experience.
