Re: [IP] Dexcom Issues



 This may sound dumb,but are you wiping the area with alcohol to remove all skin
oils before putting it on? You also have to make sure the area is totally dry.
You can also use hypafix or tegaderm to secure it better. Good luck.

  So I got my Dexcom last Wednesday. This will be the 3rd time I've had to
change
it out within this week. First time was a bad sensor, second time I had just
taken a bath and it said to change it. Now, it's falling off and I haven't even
 taken a shower since the last time I changed it.B Any suggestions on how to
keep
it from coming off? I'm getting really frustrated. I have yet to change it but
know I will have to after I bathe today. Contemplating going ahead and changing
it before my shower. But then I'll have to call support to make sure they send
me another.... please help!
