I've been using my Minimed CGM since October, and I love it. I've used it almost every day since I got it.
Now, summer brings questions and challenges: Can I wear my CGM in the water at the lake or pool?
My Medtronic rep told me that it was waterproof when connected to the sensor. I've worn it while taking a long bath and had no trouble.
However, will pool chemicals (chlorine or bromine) harm the device? What about lake water, or even ocean salt water?
I found a Canadian advertisement for the Minimed CGM that says it is "safe for the pool", but I couldn't find one for the US.
Have any of you worn your minimed CGM while swimming in the pool or lake or ocean?
