2nd failed sensor

I had my second failed sensor this week. It looked perfect, no issues from looking at it. Wasn’t even starting to come off. It had been on for 9 days out of 14. I woke up around 8:15 am and it read 5.2. That’s about where out should be and I was proud of that. Since getting hurt my blood sugar has been a little high.

About an hour and a half later it showed 11.5 and going up fast, oddly enough I hadn’t even eaten yet. I scanned again just to be sure and it was 12.4 and rising fast (the arrow straight up indicates it’s rising fast). I decided to use the test strips for the Libre and it showed 8.8. I knew then something was wrong with the sensor.

I left it about 30 minutes and checked again and it just read Hi or high. I scanned it a few more times and got a reading with my other meter which was 7 something.

This is what it looks like in the graph.

I called Abbot and they are sending out a replacement sensor. Thankfully I still had 2 unused sensors left because I get then filled 4 at a time!

    1. Thanks Kirsten, I love the Libre and it makes a huge difference in quality of life as far as not having sore fingers all the time but it sucks when technology fails. They were quick in replacing it though so at least that was something good.
