"Once the pod is off, it's trash. Unless it's in a particularly uncomfortable location, don't worry about it. Just be careful that you don't accidentally rip it off."

Joe Greene replied to Jennitar's discussion 'INFORMAL SURVEY: Is the Dexcom Seven Plus volume setting loud enough to wake you up?' in the group Dexcom Users
"YES. It wasn't at first, but I tend to sleep very heavily, and it takes me a while to adjust to new alarms and such. Now, it will wake me up almost 100% of the time on the first beep."
