FreeStyle Libre Sensor Placement

FreeStyle Libre Sensor Placement

Messed Up Again

 
I wanted to do a test:
attach a sensor early, without activating, to see if accuracy improved
especially at the beginning.
I attached the new sensor which promptly bled.
 
Although the sensor has worked fine
I made a mistake - one I have made before:
 
2 Libre Sensors

I attached the new sensor inside the "fold" so I wouldn't
scan it when I scanned the old one that I still had time on.
It wasn't enough and now at 4 days
the sensor is pulling away from the adhesive:
Libre Sensor Pulling Away

Again??!!?

I did this before
Placed the sensor where the disc was on a fold
The disc pulled away and this one is now coming loose.
UGH!!!

Ow!  Inside of Arm Hurts.

Inside the Fold of My Arm

SO
This placement was a little more inside but I was trying to stay away from the fold.
You know, the fold when you raise your hand up to wave, or high five.
I won't put the sensor in this area again.
When I sleep on my side I feel the sensor between my arm and side.
At times I feel a pinch
There is a soreness down my arm by the fold
yes
the same fold where the sensor is pulling away from the adhesive.
The adhesive is still stuck to my arm though  - LOL!
Something new everyday and I will stick to the outside of my arm!

Have a great numbers day,

Jay
