On average, how long do your Enlite sensors last and is it safe to wear them beyond 6 days?
My last sensor lasted 13 days and I took it out because I didn't want to risk scar tissue or an infection. The readings were still very close to my meter and it is hard to throw a sensor out when it is working so well.
I've only been using them for 2 months, but my sensors begin to get a little whacky after a week or so. I get lost signals, lost sensors, etc. I've tried reconnecting the existing sensor to get a few more days out of it, but that doesn't usually last too long. I'm sure mileages vary based on lots of variables, but that's been my experience.
same here. lots of lost signals, lost sensors, etc. usually starting half way though day 5
I'm surprised at how long cgm users utilize their sensors. I remember when cheating to 6 days was frowned upon by the fda. I'm concerned about the life of the transmitter as well. I've heard that if you use them till their dead, they are no good anymore. And yes the readings tend to get a little wonky after 6 days. I use mine for 6-7 days. 7 to meet a more realistic time to start a new one. Not at 5pm when the first 6 days quits.
I regularly use mine for up to 10 days. I have to charge the transmitter after about 7 days though.
I find most sensors will work right up to the end but some will get a bit wacky after a week or so. I'm putting this down to the indiviual sites themselves as opposed to the sensors. Some get more wear and tear than others! :)
