Does anyone know how long after the date on the CGM sensor is good for? Mine is date 6/13/2010.

Thanks all...will look into skin tac and have ordered the larger size Tegaderm. Looking forward to using that instead of the IV3000. Again, many thanks!

We have been using skin tac on the area before I apply the IV3000 and it hasn't rolled up or anything. I read the tip in another discussion and it was a huge help. We only use it during swimming though. Using skin tac instead of the IV prep wipes worked a lot better for us and we have better success when changing out infusion sets too.

I think the larger Tegaderm are better. I use them and I just love them. I do not like the IV3000 they tend to roll up and I have to use like 2 or 3 of them at a time but with the Tegaderm only need 1.

If anyone has va benefits, they can order your supplies. I use the larger transderm and love it. Hardly any problems with them.
Comment by Miss Miss on July 12, 2010 at 10:45am
Anthony I use the larger ones. The smaller ones like the IV3000 I have to replace before it is time to.
Comment by Anthony on July 12, 2010 at 7:32am
Many thanks, Jennifer...will order the 1626w's. Also found the IV300 rolling up in hot weather, after a shower, etc. Will order from Amazon, too. Many, many thanks....this is a great place for reliable nice to have it available.
Comment by Jennifer on July 12, 2010 at 6:28am
The 1626W is the catalog number.
Comment by Jennifer on July 12, 2010 at 6:28am
I would definitely get the bigger size Anthony - the 1626 Actually I just ordered TWO boxes from for $23 each I think - which is like more than half off anywhere else I have tried. I also currently am using the IV3000 - but they are small - and have to use at least 2 of them with each sensor, and sometimes changing them mid use as they are rolling up (especially after ocean swimming and such).
