I searched the forum before posting this. however, if this topic has already been posted please direct me. I wanted to know if others have used expired G4 sensors and what their experience with them were. I have a few that expired in September. I believe they come with 6 month expiration dates. Can I still use these 'expired' ones with accuracy? Any insights and experiences would be appreciated.

I am right now using sensors expired for one year...and they are still good

I have used expired sensors often, since I get a 90 day supply, but it lasts me six to 9 months.

I am sure that they put an expiration date that insures the sensors are good a few months after also.

The enzyme on the sensor will eventually lose it's effect, but I believe it is much longer than the expiration date.

I've used sensors up to six months past expiration and these worked OK. If the sensors track the fingetstick BGs fairly well, then no worries.
