    How many of you do this? Do the sensors still work? Do they seem as accurate as sensors that are not expired? We have several that are due to expire in July - a while away, I know, but we tend to get at least two weeks per sensor, so at that rate, I think eventually we will end up with some expired ones. Can they still be used?

    I would think that a long as it is not "years" old it would be fine.

    The only difference I've seen is that Dex obviously wouldn't replace them if something bad happened shortly after starting one :)

    Performance-wise most of the older/near expiration or even expired sensors I've used has been fine. The worst seem to always happen right after I get new ones - not sure why.
