What happens if my Dexcom G6 sensor deploys early?

If you can see the introducer needle sticking out, please be careful that you do not poke yourself and make sure to use proper disposal methods for sharps. Make sure to only remove the safety latch after you have applied the sensor and are ready to push the button on the applicator to avoid accidental deployments. Please contact Global Technical Support for a replacement sensor at 1-844-607-8398.
