Sometimes I hit a vein when inserting the medtronic sof-sensor. Should I just leave it in and wipe off all the blood or should I remove it and insert another one that does not result in bleeding?

Ben there done that
Where are you putting them ???
I started to use the front of my tummy and my chest
When I did get a big bleeder I would take it out and reinsert it in a new location
Best wishes

I can't answer this question either, but there should be a way to contact the manufacturer to ask this question.

Praying you have good fortune in that

I wish I could answer this question but I don't know enough about the continous monitor system. Id speak to my doctor right away and I'm sure the doctor will be able to answer this question for you! How are you liking this system? I've always wondered about it? Does it make life easier ? I would imagine it would be very convienant not having to test your blood all the time! Tell me a little about the system, I'm very interested?? Thanks, God bless!
