Dexcom G6 Advice


(Rachel) #1

Hello everyone, I’m Rachel and i’m 17 and I’m getting my G6 today. I was wondering if any of y’all has any advice on using this. This is my first GCM and I’ll be getting a MiniMed 630g in a couple weeks. I would like any advice and where should I put it first? I was thinking my arm but when I watched the video on how to apply it show abdomen. What do y’all think?

My daughter prefers the back of her arms, which frees up other areas for pump sites also.
