Dexcom G7® Continuous Glucose Monitoring System
While you use the Dexcom G7® Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System, you can continue enjoying the fingerprick-free* glucose tests Dexcom is known for. But Dexcom’s newest CGM system also comes with many new features, including smaller sensors and a reduced warm-up time. The Dexcom G7 CGM System has received FDA clearance for use by diabetes patients as young as two years old, and is now available for purchase from Advanced Diabetes Supply.

Like other CGM systems, people with diabetes can use the Dexcom G7® CGM System to enhance their glucose testing regimen. While this system cannot fully replace fingerprick testing, it can greatly reduce patients’ reliance on this testing method.
Like other CGM systems, the Dexcom G7® CGM System allows people with diabetes to easily view their glucose levels. While using this system, you’ll receive updates on your glucose every five minutes without having to deal with fingerprick tests.*
What sets the Dexcom G7® CGM System apart from other systems (including Dexcom’s previous CGMs) is the new features it brings to the table. This system is more accurate than any other CGM sold in America,† and it warms up twice as fast as other CGM systems.†† Along with that, you’ll be able to use the Dexcom G7® CGM System with an all-new app.¶
Failure to use the Dexcom G7® Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (G7®) and its components according to the instructions for use provided with your device and available at https://www.dexcom.com/safety-information and to properly consider all indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and cautions in those instructions for use 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 the G7® do not match symptoms, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions. Seek medical advice and attention when appropriate, including for any medical emergency.
