Our clinic has had the opportunity to offer patients the ConvaTec Silesse and Nitac. The 30 patients that were provided with these wipes reported that these products were successful in maintaining the adherence of the sensors for the duration of both CGM and FSL, were more confident in activities of daily living without having to worry about dislodgement and maintained skin integrity. Many of these patients are wearing sensors 24/7. Removal of sensors for some of the patients was an issue and with the Nitac wipe removal was painless. I would strongly support the inclusion of the above mentioned ConvaTec products with both CGM and FSL technology. Any change to make living with diabetes easier and pain free should be at the forefront of any decision.

Thank you for allowing our patients to trial the Silesse and Niltac products. Lucy and I have been using these products quite extensively in our practice and we have received a lot of positive feedback. People particularly like that Silesse does not leave a sticky residue unlike other barrier wipes and sprays, and its use has certainly extended the wear of sensors. We have a number of clients who have had allergic reactions to the glue used in pump infusion sets and CGM. We have previously used a combined approach of topical steroid and a barrier such as Cavillon. It appears that, at least for some patients, the use of Silesse has meant that topical steroid is no longer required. My son, in particular, is a huge fan of Niltac. He no longer needs to shave his legs before strapping to play sport. I his case, we have been using the Niltac spray. My more hirsute patients, who would previously shave, have been using a combination of Silesse for improved attachment and Niltac for removal with good effect. At present patients are buying their products on-line.
