At any given time, my body may looks like a canvas for dried glue artwork. The adhesives on my insulin pods and my DexCom sensors often leave behind a sticky signature, and sometimes it can take quite a bit of work to get it off. I change my pod every three days and my sensor every seven, so it seems like there’s always something being moved and re-set and newly-infused that leaves behind a gummy shadow of itself. Sometimes I get so tired of scrubbing away at the residue that I give up and just leave it. Which means you run around with a tape-gunk ring on your tummy (like in the pic below) that makes you feel like you’re the smelly kid from Charlie Brown with the flies over your head. Diabetes residue. Gross.
