Dexcom G6 sensor shelf life moving to 18 months vs 12?

More a question than a statement since at the moment all I have is an anecdote to pass on for whatever it’s worth.

In the short time (4 boxes or 12 sensors) I’ve been using the G6 the difference between manufacturing date and the “Use By Date” has been 12 months. Today I got a refill box of sensors and that shelf life just jumped to not quite 18 months. :thinking:

Mostly posting out of curiosity to see if anyone else starts noticing the “Use By Date” on their G6 sensors moves out sometime during the upcoming year.


I definitely noticed packaging changes going on, but now I’m going to have to check to see what to use by dates are. Thanks for the heads up @irrational_John


Picked up a refill box of G6 sensors this week and these also have 18 month expiration after manufacture date.


Checked my last box from Costco (filled monthly), and it is one year.
