Just got out the bath. My Dexcom sensor decides it doesn’t want to be on the back of my arm anymore and was hanging on for dear life. So I pulled it off! Didn’t even last 7️⃣ out of 10 days!!

Why’s that? I don’t understand your comment.
If you get your sensors on prescription, those costs are paid for by the NHS.
If you notify the manufacturer of any faulty ones, they will replace them to you for free, and you therefore do not need so many from the NHS

Ah ok now I understand. I’ve contacted Dexcom and they are sending me a replacement sensor as well as some overpatches.

i will still need my 3 sensors that i get on prescription. You can never have enough sensors!
