STOP THE PEEL­ING

Diabetic Living - - Management -

You can patch the ad­he­sive pads of peel­ing sen­sors and in­fu­sion sets with body glue or ap­ply an over-ban­dage be­fore the site starts to peel, says Scheiner. Tra­di­tional clearplas­tic tape, such as Te­ga­derm, can be cut to fit around your CGM or in­fu­sion site. But Oerum prefers fab­ric patches be­cause they’re breath­able and less likely to come off with sweat. Wa­ter-re­sis­tant op­tions with cus­tom shapes and pre­cut holes in­clude Skin Grip, GrifGrips, Ex­pres­sionMed and Pump Peelz.
