Hello everyone. I am new here and fairly new with diabetes.
I use a blood glucose sensor, which is on my left arm. I am right handed. I would like to know how you protect it.
Like for showers, swimming, exercise (When you sweat). Do I need to protect it?
Thanks in advance

Are you talking about the sensor, like for the Libre? I have that and have taken showers without even covering it up. However, I usually put a shower cap over it.
