Dexcom G6 CGM System

Dexcom G6 CGM System


The Dexcom G6 is a continuous glucose monitor that takes interstitial glucose levels every 5 minutes and provides data to users on their smart device or dedicated receiver. In addition to being viewed on a smart device such as a phone or watch and a receiver, the data can also be used as part of automated insulin delivery (AID) systems, including the Omnipod 5 and Tandem Control IQ. The device features built-in hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) and alerts users when glucose hits 55 mg/dL as well as customizable alerts for highs, lows, and rapid changes in rate. An optional new predictive severe hypoglycemia alert (urgent low soon alert) is available to warn users 20 minutes in advance of a potential 55 mg/dL or lower blood glucose level. No finger-stick confirmation is required when making treatment decisions, and no calibrations are required.
