I am using the Dexcom G6 and since August I have not had one sensor last the full 10 days. I started to log the behavior and here is what I’ve found. On day 7 the sensor goes into an error state for a couple of hours and then bounces back. At this time I have to calibrate since the readings are +/- 30 points off. On day 8 with a couple of calibrations, I can get through the day ok. By day 9 my readings look like an EKG line and the sensor is in and out of error state. By this time I have to change the sensor.
Before August I rarely had a failed sensor. In fact, the G6 was so accurate I hated to replace the sensor on day 10. To me, it’s obvious that Dexcom has made some change that causes this issue. For the past several months I’ve seen the exact same behavior and failure pattern with every sensor. Each time on day 8 I call Dexcom and they send me a replacement sensor, with no questions asked.
Is anyone else seeing more G6 sensor failures as of late? I’m debating if I should go back to the Libre or try Eversense.
