Put the Dexcom G6 and the Omnipod both in the same area each change so I can keep track of where they are and not knock one or both off. Must rotate to avoid tissue damage. Both make me bleed sometimes especially the Omnipod so on a 2 day change for it. My upper arms heal best, use upper lateral thigh to give arms a rest; never abdomen, not enough room or fat. Season doesn’t matter. Always wear sleeveless all year round.
My pump site is always somewhere around my midsection; for my Dexcom, I keep it more undercover (back of arm, upper thigh) in the warm seasons.
Dexcom changes sides every sensor. No pump, but my inhaler and cartridges just goes in whichever pocket my phone and keys are not in. 🙂
I do wear my infusion sets on different areas of my body (to avoid getting scar tissue). I use the same areas all year long though!
I am told to only use the backs of right and left arms for the Abbott Freestyle Libre, so I am compliant in doing so.
I’ve found that if I keep my devices in exactly in the same area, the efficacy diminishes after some time. So, I change things up That could be weekly or daily.
I live in moderate temperature Seattle. I rotate my abdomen shots of glargine and lispro to different sites each day.With each new sensor I move my Dexcom 6 to one of three different abdominal sites.
If you wear a T1D device, do you wear your devices in different areas of your body, depending on the season of the year? Cancel reply

I wear my devices kinda in the under cover spots in the summer so it doesn’t get hot in the winter I wear it anywhere it will stay warm so they don’t get to cold
