    I need help! I am going to order a freestyle libre sensors. But I am training BJJ, grappling and wrestling and Idk how to protect sensor on back of my arm. For example someone goes for arm drag he is going to rip it off. Does someone have any experience with it or advice?

    Cover it? if you only want to cover it temporarily then a tubigrip or cut and old sock and use the ankle piece, or use a tegaderm patch etc, if your using a tegaderm or cohesive bandage put a piece of paper the size of a £2 coin between sensor and covering though as if it needs changed it wont tug on the sensor then, there are rugby players etc using the Libre so its very possible to do xx
