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!
