Has anyone found they have issues with sites failing on their stomach? I’m only 9 weeks so it’s not like my stomach is firm but I tried two dexcom sites the other night and both failed, even though one of them was in almost the same spot I used two weeks ago.
Seems the only sites I can get to work are on my thigh and I’m running out of spots since that’s also where I do my Levemir shots haha.
I may have to try my arms next.
Just seems weird my stomach sites would suddenly not work…
The only way I can accurately describe the location of mine is the area on the side of my hip/butt cheek. My underwear cover it up and it’s right where they start to get wider from the thinnest part on the sides (bikini-style ones). This location is accurate, doesn’t get in the way, and stays in the longest for me. I just rotate sides when I change the sensor.
@Erica1710 - I’ll have to give that spot a shot! thanks
@mschuh - my thigh’s have been working well I just need another spot to switch to. I’m only able to use my thigh for my long-acting shots since they are so large so I’m just worried about over using the areas
