    Hi guys - Just ordered my second sensor after activating my 1st sensor it took about 24 hrs to settle down and give correct readings - My question is that I know the sensors only last 14 days and I plan to attach the sensor 24 hrs before I activate it, but does the 14 days start from the day you attach the sensor or the day you activate it?? as I wish to get as many correct readings for my consultant as possible. Thanks... Also I wish to access the professional options so that I can change the insulin units and correction doses etc... does anyone know the code or do I need permission from my DNS?

    I think @tim2000s or @robert72 gave me the code. Mhaving input it to my own reader, I have forgotten it. Sorry. :(

    P.s. - deferring sensor activation by 24/48 hours seems effective for me.
