How do I keep my FreeStyle Libre CGM sensor from falling off?

Wash the area with soap and water and shave the area completely. Whether you're applying the sensor to your stomach or arm, it’s important to have clean, dry, smooth skin.

  1. Use the alcohol wipes provided and let it air dry completely.
  2. If you’re susceptible to skin irritation, pretreat the area with an adhesive barrier, like Skin Tac.
  3. Cover the sensor with a CGM patch or slick, like this one.
  4. Wait at least one hour before getting the sensor wet. This will give your adhesives a better chance to adhere to your skin.
