ADVERTORIAL

Dexcom CGM – Indicated for all types of diabetes!#

Unlike fingerprick checking, CGM measures glucose levels continually, allowing people to detect potential highs or lows throughout the day and night in real-time. With Dexcom G6 CGM, the outstanding accuracy allows people with diabetes to make management decisions with no fingerpricks*.

How does CGM work?

  1. Sensor and Transmitter: A slim sensor is inserted via an applicator and continuously measures glucose levels just beneath the skin, and sends data wirelessly via Bluetooth to a display device through a transmitter.
  2. Display Device: A compatible smart device or a small touchscreen Receiver displays real-time glucose readings.^

Who can benefit from Dexcom G6?

  • Indicated for anyone over two years of age with type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes
  • It works whether people are using multiple daily injections (MDI) or an insulin pump
