Hi all I was recently diagnosed with T1D in March.
Anyways, here’s my dilemma: today my sensor started to fail so I replaced it. Unfortunately, within five minutes of the sensor warmup session, the app told me that the sensor failed. I tried re-using it by typing in the code again and the same thing happened. Then I got out a new sensor, injecting it (this time it was very painful) and it started the sensor warmup and then failed again.
I am wondering if I need to wait a certain amount of time to start a new sensor after stopping my old one, or if the product sometimes malfunctions? This didn’t happen the first time I changed my sensor so I am just very confused and distraught and this has taken away most of my time today. Does anyone have any advice or know how to make sure this doesn’t happen again?
EDIT: I put it in my arm - I don’t know if that helps at all but…
