I like these patches and they do prevent the irritation from my CGM but i find that when inserting through the patch, the CGM does not adhere. I had one CGM come out as i was pulling out the inserter.
Thank you for your review! The underpatch is designed for people who have skin sensitivities to the adhesive that comes with their device/pump. Since your device is designed to adhere only to skin, our underpatch should be paired with an overlay patch to ensure your device is secure.
These under patches have been such a wonderful help for my husband. Now his Dexcom sensors will stay on the full 10 days! He is allergic to the adhesive on the G6 pads. Thank you so much for this product.
My skin is still irritated by these. The rash isn't as bad as it is without them, but they still irritate my skin pretty badly by the 10th day.
I have use them once and it is do well.
My 6 yr old daughter has relied on her omnipod since she was diagnosed with T1D in 2019. After a few years, she started experiencing horrible reactions to the adhesive that would leave her skin blistered and bleeding. For a short time, we were able to use an opsite dressing under the pod and not experience a reaction, unfortunately that solution only worked for about 6 months before we started having issues once again. As she had already been using expression med dressings since her journey with omnipod (and dexcom) began, I knew her skin tolerated the adhesive without any adverse reactions. I was so relieved when expression med began making the underpatches as well and they truly couldn't have come at a more opportune time! We are so thankful for this wonderful product.
