The Dexcom G6 is a CGM system that allows people with diabetes to quickly and simply monitor their glucose levels. While using this system, you can continually see your sensor glucose readings – updated every five minutes for up to seven days – without the pain and inconvenience of constant fingerstick measurements.*
The Dexcom G6 provides personalized trend alerts, prompting you to react when your glucose levels are getting too low or too high. Dexcom also offers web-based reports reflecting your glucose trends and patterns. These reports can be shared with your diabetes healthcare team when developing your diabetes management treatment plan.

Use a blood glucose meter to confirm any highs or lows and when your symptoms do not match your sensor’s readings.
Transmitters used in the Dexcom G6 CGM System are water-resistant, as is the G6 Sensor Pod when transmitters are correctly installed. Since the Dexcom G6 receiver is not water-resistant or waterproof, it can be damaged by moisture.
Acetaminophen doses are higher than 1 gram every 6 hours can affect your readings.
Dexcom Share is a Dexcom G6 app feature that lets users share their glucose data with up to 10 designated people, or “followers.” When your followers download the Dexcom Follow app to their compatible smart devices, they can remotely monitor your glucose data.t
