    I’ve been wearing a libre covered with tegaderm since March. I swim regularly for up to an hour with no problem.

    the sauna at the leisure club has just reopened, and I went in for 10 minutes this week, the first time with the libre on. As I was getting dressed I noticed the libre and tegaderm had come completely off my arm.

    Does anyone here with a libre wear it into the sauna? Could it just have been that I caught it with my costume and didn’t feel it, or do you think the heat affects the glue?

    I have worn my libre without any support in sauna for several years without any issues. My time in sauna is normally half hour. No problems. Good luck!

    I have worn a Libre in the sauna. I wouldn't trust the numbers reported by it during the session but it recovered afterwards.
    It never came off.
