WHAT IS A CGM?

Continuous Glucose Monitor

Taking glucose readings from your blood, CGM sensor glucose readings are taken from the interstitial fluid (ISF), a thin layer of fluid that surrounds the cells of the tissues below your skin. Blood glucose readings tend to be about 5 to 10 minutes ahead of interstitial glucose readings. For most treatment decisions, sensor readings from the

Dexcom G6 system can replace finger stick readings.

What is the Dexcom G6

What is it?

The Dexcom G6 is Dexcom's latest generation continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system. Unlike previous generations, this CGM system is factory-calibrated—so no finger sticks are required.

The Dexcom G6 sends glucose readings to a compatible smart device or the Dexcom receiver every 5 minutes.


How does the Dexcom CGM work?

1. A tiny sensor wire is inserted under your skin using an automatic applicator Users insert a tiny sensor wire just under the skin using an automatic applicator. An adhesive patch holds the CGM sensor in place so it can measure glucose readings in interstitial fluid throughout the day and night.

2. Your transmitter sends data to a small, reusable transmitter connects to the sensor wire and sends real-time readings wirelessly to a receiver so you can view the information. With some systems, a compatible smart device with the CGM system app.

3. You receive updates & alerts. The receiver or compatible smart device displays current glucose levels, as well as historical trends in levels. The Dexcom CGM receiver and/or compatible smart device can also be set to send you custom alerts when certain glucose thresholds are reached.
