"That's a shame, I have had it on my upper thigh since Tuesday and it has been spot on my glucometer. And it is comfortable as well. I hope it doesn't crap out like yours has. I hated it on my stomach."

"I'm really wondering if it's a wrong insertion site for me (upper thigh). It was perfect until the third day. I was impressed with my control and how my line was barely going above 120 but on the fourth day, after my breakfast, nothing…"

"I'm glad you did experiment as well. My experiment with the back of my left arm went very badly. I had placed the sensor too far back and it interferred with my sleeping and just about everything else. So after only 1 day I decided to remove…"

"Thanks for the warning Jay. And while I understand using an "unapproved" site for the sensor could in fact make me liable for any and all consequences, if I did have to use the tiny bit of real estate that is approved for this device, I…"

"Only thing to be careful of is your insurance may not pay if you do not use items according to manufacturer instructions. There was a parent on here about three years ago with a very sad story about a misadventure and insurance would not cover the…"

Ahh, that's why I think I will like the CGMS w/ my pump better. It's all attached so there are no worries about carrying around extra pieces. :)

Welcome to the site. I hope you find it useful. I have really enjoyed the site myself. It's a wealth of support and information. I see you use the medtronic cgm? But you aren't on a pump? How does that work for you? I am on a pump and have recently been approved for cgm, but haven't received it yet.
Once again, welcome. And enjoy!
