Key Taping Methods | Medtronic Diabetes

Seasonal climates, skin lotions/creams, trapped moisture or different clothing may affect your tape adhesion or the way your body reacts to it. Here are some important things to remember and alternate tips to try. Infusion Set & Sensor- General Suggestions Try removing dead surface skin cells with a facial scrub, brush or loofah or a washcloth with soap and water followed by an alcohol swab. Stretch skin tight before using a prep wipe or tape. After you apply the tape, go back over the tape with your finger. Avoid placing your infusion or sensor site at your waistband which could rub and loosen the tape. Avoid using lotions where you intend on applying tape as the tape won't stick well on top of lotion. If possible, plan to change your site around your shower time so you can clean the site well. Before you shower, remove your old infusion set. You may clean off the old adhesive with an adhesive remover if the skin appears to be sticky. In the shower, wash off the area with soap. If your site change is not around your shower time, be sure to wash your hands with soap and water as well as the areas you intend to insert your infusion set. Disinfect the skin with isopropyl alcohol or an alcohol wipe. Let skin dry thoroughly before applying either the infusion set or the adhesive. Apply a prep wipe (for example IV Prep ) in a large area around the site and fan it, allowing it to become sticky. You can also try a stronger adhesive, such as Mastisol . However, be sure to have Detachol solvent available for removal. Touch as little of the adhesive as possible on the infusion set to avoid getting skin oils on it. Insert your infusion set following the process and techniques your trainer showed you or review this support video . On days you know you will be very active, sweating Continue reading >>

Six Until Me.: Opsite Flexifix: You Can Stick Around.

Six Until Me.: Opsite Flexifix: You Can Stick Around.

From Abby: The Diabetes/Sleep Equation. | Main | The Droid You're Looking For. A few days before I headed to San Diego , I slapped on a new Dexcom sensor. And when I was ready to fly out on Sunday morning, I noticed that the edges of the sensor adhesive were peeling back. I casually mentioned this to a new acquaintance of mine, and she immediately started talking about "optiflex something tape?" and suddenly, a patch of it appeared from the depths of her purse. Which is how I ended up at a conference with my pant leg hitched up to my hip, asking an almost-stranger to tape down the edges of my medical device. But this stuff? Works. Like proverbial gangbusters . That Dexcom sensor was on its second-to-last day, and it made it another nine days before the results started to wonk out on me. (NO I am not advocating that you restart your sensors and try to get more life out of them. I'm simply saying that the tape helps keep your sensor stuck firmly for seven days. I just happened to get mad lazy with this one and left it on longer than recommended. YDMV.) I mentioned this stuff on Twitter the day after I returned home, but I keep getting the name wrong. "Optiflex? Opflex? Optimus Prime Flex?" For the record, it's Opsite Flexifix tape: I ordered mine from Amazon, and when it arrived, it was in a nice, little tight roll (not this kind of tight roll ) with a light green grid on the outside of the tape. My current Dexcom sensor is on its third day, so I thought I'd slap a little tape on it. I rolled out a short length (enough to cover the sensor edges fully) and cut out a center square ( Jim! J! Bullock !) to accommodate the transmitter: On one side of the tape, it says "REMOVE FIRST." I can take a hint; so I pulled that side of the tape off first and stuck it to my thigh (arou Continue reading >>

Dexcom Adhesive Irritation & Allergy

Dexcom Adhesive Irritation & Allergy

Caleb has been using the DexCom Seven Plus continuous glucose monitoring system since September of 2009. For quite a while he used it without any skin issue whatsoever. After about seven months of use (or at approximately the time that this picture of Caleb was taken, and yes, that is the only tie-in of this post to that picture, but I didnt want the next picture to be the one that you are first greeted with for obvious reasons) things started to get a little tricky. His skin started to react and frankly, it was nasty. It was also heartbreaking. This tool which provided such valuable information, and comfort in otherwise stressful times of blindness, was working wonderfully but for this acid-like burning of Calebs skin. Caleb's skin after only a couple days of use My heartfelt thanks to so many of you who gave me suggestions. I dont think I can remember all of the things Ive tried over the last six or so months. Here is a list of many of them: Wipe the skin really, really well with alcohol to clean away as much of your skins natural oils as possible Apply Benedryl spray/gel/cream on the skin before placing the sensor on Apply IV3000 or similar tape on the skin before placing the sensor on Any combination of the above applications Place a cotton round under the sensor to absorb moisture Dry the adhesive after showering/swimming with hair dryer One time I placed IV3000 on his skin, then the sticky side of another piece of IV3000 to the sticky side of the DexCom sensor. It took quite a bit of coordination to then apply tape over the sensor with the inserter still attached to be able to adhere it to his body. As desperate as we were for a solution, I was glad this technique did not work. We had some improvement at times. This picture shows Calebs arm a couple days after re Continue reading >>

Hey everyone! Long time no see (totally my fault, Ive been slacking). I just wanted to give you guys a 6 month with diabetes/life update! Ill start with life, I have one more semester of college left and Ill be graduating in May with a job (thank you Jesus )!!! I also recently got engaged to my boyfriend of 4 years We are getting married 7 days after graduation and right before I start my job (yes I am insane )Now for diabetes, my last A1C was a 6.2% and auto mode has saved my life ~literally~ more than once. I went into my first semester of my senior year kind of hesitant, because I had never had diabetes before and I am super involved on campus. To my surprise, every single person, including my sorority sisters and various friends in other clubs, have been so supportive and immediately wanted to understand better from the second I told them about my diagnosis. They still ask me questions all the time and I love being able to educate about the disease. I honestly didnt think that a lot of good would come out of this, but I am able to be an advocate, live a much healthier lifestyle, and I am so much more responsible now. Of course there have been difficult times and I really had to push myself to go to class or even get out of bed, but I made it through! Diabetes has had a huge impact on my life so far, mostly good and some bad, but Im so blessed to being living the life that I do. Heres to 6 months of being a diabetic, thank you guys for always encouraging me (whether you know you are or not through your posts) A huge thank you to my mom and fianc, I couldnt have made it without you guys #diabadass #diabetic #diabetes #typeonediabetes #typeonediabetic #t1d #insulinpump #diabadass #autoimmune #t1dlookslikeme #diabeticlife #medtronic #670g #automode #engaged #college Ne Continue reading >>

Successful Use Of Dexcom W/ Adhesive Allergy

Successful Use Of Dexcom W/ Adhesive Allergy

This site uses cookies. By continuing to use this site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies. Learn More. Successful use of Dexcom w/ adhesive allergy A lot of people have asked me to update once I figured out how to manage my pretty severe allergy to the dexcom adhesive. So I figured I would post an update to my ongoing saga. Feel free to scroll past this info if you want. Background info: Around 3 weeks into dexcom use I suddenly developed an allergy to the adhesive. In the outline of the adhesive I had a burn mark that blistered (and left a scar I still have). It was on my upper arm and I also had hives up and down my arm as well as my neck as well as a generalized red itchy rash (but very minor compared to the hives). Now: I was gchating with my cde on thursday and she suggested trying to get the dex to work sooner rather then later to deal with some pretty scary lows the medtronic is just not catching in time. It just so happened that, that night I was working with 2 guys who went to my college and came back to visit who happen to be er docs. We were all hanging out at my house and figured it might be a nice project to remove the adhesive and see what we could do. I was fine with it since I was in pretty great hands if I were to have any sort of reaction. DISCLAIMER: I 100% don't recommend doing this without speaking to your doctors. This is probably not the most responsible thing I have ever done. And I am pretty sure dexcom would not approve of this in any way. A side note here: I get hives on my hands from touching the adhesive. I wore latex gloves for this whole thing and changed them between steps. The guys made sure not to touch my skin without changing gloves. To remove the adhesive, we first just tore it off. We then used a uni-solve wipe to get the rest Continue reading >>

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community I thought I would make a thread similar to all those other famous recurring threads, you know the ones - "Just how brilliant am I today?", "No seriously, just how brilliant am I?", and "Hey gang, let's upload our daily bowel movements!" The theme of my thread however will be how many sessions you can get out of your CGM sensor to "stretch" its lifetime. All forms of sensors are welcome, including "flash" sensors as well as traditional CGMs. "How to" and "Epic fail" posts are welcome, and general "stretching" topics, as well as the basic meat and drink of marking off sensor sessions [and transmitter lifetimes]. And please remember to keep it friendly and light hearted at all times. It's not a competition, but I'm definitely going to win. :-D Just started my 4th session on this Dexcom G4 sensor. So that's the 4th week of continuous use just starting. I'm quite excited as I have never completed a 4th session before. The pressure is on. I really should do some tape surgery on the sensor as well. I bunged on some Micropore this morning after my shower but I really should do the full monty with the Tegaderm. Too knackered now so maybe tomorrow. And I've set myself up to wake up at 2am to do the starting calibrations. Oh joy! The 3rd session was uncannily accurate, usually within 0.1 mmol/L of the finger stick meter even at higher values. I wonder if that will hold up. Here goes! Im ending my 3rd today. This is a good stretch for me! however in the last 3 hours Ive only had about an hour of readings and am now on ??? I'm going to hold out now until i get home so thats 8 hours away (ish) This has also been a very well behaved sensor This one has been in for a Continue reading >>

Tape Tips: Getting The Most Out Of Your Infusion Set And Sensor This Summer

Tape Tips: Getting The Most Out Of Your Infusion Set And Sensor This Summer

Home Education and Information Tape Tips: Getting the Most Out of Your Infusion Set and Sensor This Summer Tape Tips: Getting the Most Out of Your Infusion Set and Sensor This Summer Posted by Karrie Hawbaker On July 6, 2017 In Education and Information With summer upon us, we receive so many questions about how to make the most out of your infusion set and glucose sensor sites. Its a busy time of year, typically with lots of water, sweat and even sand! Here are some great tips straight from our website to help you better prepare for summer! Plan your site change around your shower, so you can clean the site well. Before you shower, remove your old infusion set and clean off the adhesive if your skin appears to be sticky. Once youre in the shower, make sure to wash off both your old and new insertion sites. If you cant plan your site change around a shower, be sure to wash your hands with soap and water as well as the area where youre going to put your infusion set. Once ready to put in your infusion set, disinfect your skin with isopropyl alcohol or an alcohol wipe. Let your skin dry thoroughly before applying either the infusion set or the adhesive. In summer, it might be especially important to apply a prep wipe (like the one available through our online store here: IV Prep ) in a large area around the site and fan it, allowing it to become sticky. If necessary, you can also try a stronger adhesive, such as Mastisol , but make sure to have Detachol solvent available for removal. Especially important during summer, make sure to avoid using oils and lotions around the area of insertion. For optimal adhesion, you might want to shave excessive body hair around your insertion site. For added security (with infusion sets only), the Sandwich Method , suggests you apply a c Continue reading >>
