where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Any suggestions for keeping sensors on for more than a few days ? I sweat and the tegaderm tape is not breathable

For those of you always looking for a good over tape I use KT Tape it works great I just cut out a hole in it for my sites and DEXCOM sensor I just keep a old sensor around to help with the cut very easy and you can put a little skin tac or ivprep and it will last you about 3weeks. The best place to get this tape right now is Sports authority because they are going out of business. I only paid $20 for both.

We use a tag punch tagaderm. We put skin tack under sensor then on top before we cover with tagaderm. Our 10 year old gets on average 4 weeks on each.

Opsite Flexifix sticks better than Tegaderm, in my experience.
