I started out great on the G6, with decent accuracy, ability to restart and stretch sensor life a few extra days, and trouble free CGMing. The good times lasted about 5 months and came to a halt with my last 4 sensors. Each of these would not go longer than 8-9 days. Their death throes include sensor error messages lasting 1-2 hours, unexplainable rapid BG drops (similar to pressure lows but ending in sensor error) and unpredictable usefulness of the CGM over its last day or two.
I suspect the algorithm is at fault. I never had these types of issues with G5, and was always able to keep it going with strategic calibrations, a good tape job, and crossed fingers.
I am ready to try any suggestions regarding code vs no code, calibrate vs never calibrate, and what to do after a 1-2 hour sensor error (I’ve tried calibrating every few hours after a dropout and that seems to help for a half day or so).
Rather than post the play by play of my failed attempts to get 10 days out of these sensors, I’d enjoy hearing your best practices. Thanks!
