What is a Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System?
CGM systems are widely used by diabetes patients to consistently monitor glucose levels. CGM systems rely on connectivity between an adhesive sensor attached to the body and a receiver that provides the patient with readings and alerts of glucose levels.
CGM devices may sometimes fail to alert patients of accurate glucose levels. Inaccurate readings, or no readings at all, can, in some cases, lead to severe health issues or death.
The Dexcom G6 is Dexcom’s latest generation continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system. The Dexcom G6 CGM system is factory-calibrated, so no finger sticks are needed. The Dexcom G6 is comprised of a sensor, transmitter, and display device. The Dexcom G6 sends glucose readings to the Dexcom receiver or a compatible smart device every five (5) minutes. The Dexcom G6 is indicated for patients ages 2 and older.
