Failure to use the Dexcom G6 CGM System and its components according to the instructions for use and all indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and cautions may result in you missing a severe hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) or hyperglycemia (high blood glucose) occurrence and/or making a treatment decision that may result in injury. If your glucose alerts and readings from your Dexcom G6 Mobile CGM System do not match your symptoms or expectations, use a fingerstick blood glucose value from your blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions. Seek medical attention when appropriate.
Please review the product instructions before using the Dexcom G6 CGM System. Indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, cautions, and other important user information can be found in the product instructions that are included with or accompany, the Dexcom G6 Mobile CGM System. Discuss with your healthcare professional how you should use the information displayed on the Dexcom G6 Mobile System to help manage your diabetes. The product instructions contain important information on troubleshooting the Dexcom G6 Mobile CGM System and on the performance characteristics of the system.
The Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (Dexcom G6 System) is a real-time, continuous glucose monitoring device indicated for the management of diabetes in persons age 2 years and older.
The Dexcom G6 System is intended to replace fingerstick blood glucose testing for diabetes treatment decisions. Interpretation of the Dexcom G6 System results should be based on the glucose trends and several sequential readings over time. The Dexcom G6 System also aids in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long-term therapy adjustments.
The Dexcom G6 System is also intended to autonomously communicate with digitally connected devices, including automated insulin dosing (AID) systems. The Dexcom G6 System can be used alone or in conjunction with these digitally connected medical devices for the purpose of managing diabetes.
No MRI/CT/Diathermy – MR Unsafe
Don’t wear your CGM (sensor, transmitter, receiver, or smart device) for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scan, or high frequency electrical heat (diathermy) treatment.
The G6 hasn’t been tested in those situations. The magnetic fields and heat could damage the components of the G6, which may cause it to display inaccurate G6 sensor glucose readings (G6 readings) or may prevent alerts. Without G6 readings or alarm/alert notifications, you might miss a severe low or high glucose event.
