Dexcom G4 Sensor Insertion Tutorial

You’ve just switched over to a Dexcom G4 Sensor and are wondering if it’s a good idea to try and insert it in your arm rather than just your abdomen. Well Diabetic Danica has the answer and tips for you.

Watch as this amazing type 1 proves how inserting the Dexcom in your arm with one hand is possible in this step-by-step video. Dexcom advises users to only wear it on their abdomen, but Diabetic Danica has found that inserting the Dexcom in her hip and arm has shown no difference in accuracy and recommends giving it a try.
