Erin and I finally made the decision to no longer even try to go beyond 7 days on each sensor. Inevitably, what happens for us is that we do the 2-hour warm-up period (keep in mind, that with loop, I need to check BG’s every 15 minutes and input into Apple Health in order to keep loop running…so that’s 9 finger sticks at a minimum), and then only a few short hours later, his sensor coincidently begins crapping out. So we have to then do an actual sensor change-out which results in another 9 finger sticks.
After seeing this pattern over the past few months, we’ve finally decided that it’s just not worth it to try and extend a session because it’ll crap out just as soon as we do the 2-hour warm up for the session. I still feel like it’s too coincidental that there be ZERO issues with disconnects in session 1, but as soon as session 2 begins, suddenly we’re seeing question marks…I somehow think they’ve put something into it (degradation of enzymes or something within cannula) that begin breaking down at a rapid pace after 7 days.
