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?
@Racheltoner hi Rachel, you can do a search on G6 in the upper right corner there is a magnifying glass icon. there’s tons of information here.
below are the most typical spots for both infusion sets and CGM.

Check the blogs ov Diabetes Strong. She has a good real life review of G6 and videos of how to insert on arm, etc. Good luck!

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