The Sugar Patch


UNDERLAY/BARRIER PATCHES 2.35 INCHES X 3.3 INCHES  Great for Dexcom G6, Medtronic Guardian and Libre 2 sensors!  If you are using the Dexcom G7 or Libre 3 sensors, please, use the Dexcom G7/Libre 3 underlay/barrier patches with hole for sensor needle  or Small Generic underlay/barrier patches without hole for sensor needle

Many of our friends have experienced severe adhesive reactions from CGM sensors, so we have made some simple unprinted barrier tapes, with the same hypoallergenic tape used in our patches, that will keep the sensor or pump tape from touching the skin and causing reactions, itching, and/or adhesive chemical burns.

These Oval Shaped Adhesive Barrier patches go under the sensor, protecting you from the adhesives used in the diabetes technology that you use.  The barriers are large enough to protect your skin under Dexcom G6, Medtronic & Libre 2 sensors, yet small enough to be completely covered by our designer patches/overlays.  We recommend that you also use one of our over patches to additionally secure your sensor, pod or infusion set.


The barrier patches are designed to be applied to the skin underneath the sensor/pod/infusion set to protect sensitive skin from the adhesive of the sensor/pod/infusion set. Clean and allow the skin to dry in the area where you will be applying the sensor/pod/infusion set.  Remove the paper backing from the barrier patch and apply to the skin. Peel the backing away from the sensor/pod/infusion set. Place it over the barrier patch and insert the sensor/pod/infusion set through the patch.  Use one of our overlay patches over the sensor/pod/infusion set and barrier patch to keep it secured to the skin.  Be sure to pat dry the patches, or use a hair dryer on a low setting to dry the patches, after bathing or showering.
