The first 24 hours or so of a new Dexcom G6 sensor are expected to be a little off, or sometimes pretty far off. I’m guessing all users have experienced this endearing habit of the G6. So far the sensors seem to settle in after 24 hours. I’ve also had good luck with a 12-24 hour presoak of the sensor before starting it.
This morning for various reasons I was not able to do a presoak on a new G6 sensor. When I’ve checked against a fingerstick the readings are not too far off considering this is still the first 12 hours. However The sensor readings are much jumpier than I’ve seen on previous sensors. Has anybody had a graph like this that jumps all over but (hopefully) then settles down and becomes a good sensor lasting 10 days? Or is this jumpiness evidence of a sensor that is doomed from the start?
