Sandy replied to breaddrink's discussion '530G with Enlite sensor - not getting 6 days life, again.'
"My sensors typically last 2-3 days. And the values I'm getting? They vary dramatically. On the rare occasion that the sensor last for 6 days the numbers I get are worthless. The times they only last 2 days? They are good. I'm not impressed."

So I JUST ran out of my previous sensors (the sofsensors) and was getting excellent accuracy with them on the 530, but simply wanted to burn through my old supply before starting on the enlites.My test sensor (the one free with the 530) only lasted for 5 days, and my first official fresh from the box enlite has again crapped out on day 5.This is what I was afraid of with the smaller area of the testing surface that is below the skin (more comfy to insert, but I wonder if this is going to be a…See More
