Dexcom Sensor Video - Sort Of.
I've had several emails about how to apply the Dexcom sensor (watch the video), how big is it (like two quarters side-by-side), does it hurt (not usually), does it automatically give insulin (no - that would mean it's a pancreas), does it need to be fed or watered (no), can it fly (yes - when I throw it), do I like it (yes).
I wanted to do an akward little instructional about how to apply a new Dexcom sensor to my lower back, and with Chris's help, I think we captured most of it. It gets a little shaky in there when we're clipping in the transmitter to the sensor housing, but you get the gist. Hopefully. :)
As far as placement goes, I've worn it on the back of my arm, on my abdomen, and on my lower back. My main issue is keeping that sucker STUCK to me for the full duration. For those of you wearing a Dexcom, where are you sticking your sensors? Any tips on new places?
(Please forgive me for talking so damn fast on that video. I forget that not everyone communicates at the same foolish warp speed as me. I need to take a breath!)
