How to take off the sensor after it expires

Each sensor is worn for two weeks and must be removed on day 14. Removing the sensor is a quick and simple process similar to removing a bandaid. However, it is important to be careful when removing the sensor as this process can irritate your skin.

If the adhesive patch is fully attached to the sensor, consider gently peeling the edges of the patch off your skin before attempting to remove the sensor.

Once the patch is lifted off your skin, gently peel back the sensor in one motion until it is fully removed from your arm. This should only take a few seconds and is generally painless. After removing the sensor, you might have an additional layer of adhesive on your skin. It can be challenging to remove this layer of adhesive, so we recommend picking an edge and slowly pulling the adhesive off.

Good luck, you've got this! πŸ™Œ
