Sensor Tips!

Getting Ready

1. Self-Application: You can apply the sensor yourself or have a friend help you.
2. Don't worry it doesn't hurt: There is a needle for insertion but it leaves only a thin fibre inside.
3. Shower First: Avoid showering/swimming for 6 hours post-application.

Putting the Sensor On

1. Simultaneous Press: Press down the applicator AND button simultaneously for application.
2. Use Cover Patch: Use the included patch to help keep the sensor in place, there's no way reattach if it falls off.

While in Use

1. Avoid Knocks: Be cautious around doorframes and when removing bags/clothes.
2. Maintain Connection: Stay near your phone, keep your Bluetooth on and the Dexcom app active to maintain the connection.
