i have seen tweets about people who have been wearing their dexcom for almost three weeks and have always thought, WOW, i wish my dexcom would stick on that long ... so far i'm at two and a half weeks, longest EVER!
it is just starting to peel off at the edges. it's still reading very accurately too, i think i'm about three or four days into the second week. (i should probably remember the day i start them.)
last week, i got some new tape to put over my sites to help them stick on longer. i've been using OLD tape (i'm talking 11 years old) that i used to put on over the first infusion sets i ever used to hold them on and it has been working fine, but i wondered if using tape that was made, i don't know, in this decade, might hold better.
i haven't used it yet, but i'm thinking i might need to slap some on there tonight or tomorrow. i'm setting my own record for how long i'm wearing a dexcom sensor! go me!
