Has anyone tried a shallow sensor insertion angle and had it work?
I love my CGM but the sensors are killing me. The 45 angle is not only leaving me bruised but bleeding for hours after it is inserted. I know the whole thing has to be in but I am thinking I am going to start playing with the angle a bit and I wanted to know if anyone else has.
I know the sensor has to be in the that special ( forgot what it is called) tissue place but really one length is not one size fits all. Share all your wisdom please for us less enlightened

SO I found an angle that works for me. Thank you everyone. 30 degrees is my fit with readings that match my meter almost perfect. I still only have 2 places I can wear it but this my second sensor tested at this angle. The first lasted 2 days I knocked it out :P but the readings were great. This one is on its 3rd day and still giving me great results. It saved me last yesterday from a very bad low. Woke me up this morning with a bad site. I know this angle is weird and not suppose to be good but it works at least for me. I might have to change it later though I am trying to gain weight so maybe 15 pounds later the angle will have to change but that would be a good thing.
Thanks again, take care and be loved
