I have noticed that I do not seem to be getting as long out of my sensors for the Minilink CGM as I used to, and as others seem to. Today is day 5 and readings have been off...were very accurate for days 1, 2, 3, and 4. Seems I am getting "bad sensor" readings around day 4-5.
I was wondering, for those using the same sensor (with minilink's lasting for 3 days before requiring a restart) for 6 days or more, do you charge the transmitter before hitting *start new sensor.* I was wondering if that might help.
I try to get as long as possible out of them as I hate the sensor insertion process...I have heard it described as a harpoon and that about sums it up for me!
