I've been wearing my Dexcom for about three months now just wondering if any other adults have had luck placing in a spot other than the abdomen?

my favorite dex spot is actually my thigh. it can go anywhere you can see sitting down. I usually go towards the inside of the thigh.

Not adult but my daughter loves the back of her arm works great last for average 1minth

I have it on my outer thigh and it last me around 5 weeks. I started using rock tape to see if I can wear it for the full 2 mths.

it's sort of upper inner thigh. it's not directly facing the other thigh but it's on the upper thigh towards that one.
