For simple sensor removal rub an adhesive remover wipe or cotton ball soaked in baby oil around the plastic part of the sensor.
When applying a new sensor, select a different site other than the one most recently used.
How to remove and replace sensor
REPLACING YOUR SENSOR
Your sensor automatically stops working after 14 days of wear and must be replaced. You should also replace your sensor if you notice any irritation or discomfort at the application site or if your phone or reader reports a problem with the sensor currently in use. Taking action early can keep small problems from turning into larger ones.
Pull up the edge of the adhesive that keeps your sensor attached to your skin. Slowly peel away from your skin in one motion. Note: Any remaining adhesive residue on the skin can be removed with warm soapy water or isopropyl alcohol.
Discard the used sensor according to your local regulations. When you are ready to apply a new sensor, follow the instructions in the Applying Your sensor and Starting Your sensor sections. If you removed your last sensor before 14 days of use, you will be prompted to confirm that you would like to start a new sensor when you first scan it.
How do you discard the disposable components, for example sensor pack and applicator?
This product should be disposed of in accordance with all applicable local regulations related to the disposal of
electronic equipment, batteries, sharps, and materials potentially exposed to body fluids.
This means the used applicator and sensor pack should be disposed of in a Biohazard Sharps bin - Clinical waste referral
is required from the district nurse or GP, but the majority of people with diabetes will already have the necessary
arrangements in place.
