So my 10 day sensor wear just ended, and I wanted to update a bit. I did manage to get another Libre reader (although the pharmacist was very skeptical of the fact that I needed a new one since it has hardly been a month since I got the first one, they even called to confirm again that I actually wanted another reader ), and I started up the new sensor as the old sensor started telling me it had 12 hours left. The reader is now telling me that the old sensor has expired… however the MiaoMiao is still dutifully reporting data from it, so I am thinking that it may last for the full 14 days allowed outside the US For science, I do want to test that theory, but I also now have this new sensor fully functional on my other arm which seems a little wasteful. I may just leave the MiaoMiao on the old sensor until I have had the new sensor on for a full 24 hours (my sensor accuracy tends to improve a lot after that point) and then actually see whether this next sensor will last the full 2 weeks.
I suppose I ought to also see whether the MiaoMiao will pick up data after the first hour instead of after the first 12 hours, hopefully that’s true.
