Dexcom is the leader in continuous glucose monitoring for people with diabetes.

Released in June 2018, the Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitoring system uses a small sensor placed on a patient’s lower abdomen that wirelessly sends their glucose levels to a smart phone, smartwatch or receiver, allowing them to closely and discreetly monitor their numbers without being required to prick their fingers for diabetes management.

The system also has built-in alerts and alarms that proactively notify patients and their family and friends before their blood glucose reaches potentially dangerous levels. It really is a revolutionary, life-changing device.
