Put your patients in better control.

CGM First

Greater A1C Improvements

Patients on multiple daily injections (MDI) insulin therapy and Dexcom CGM saw greater A1C reduction than those on pump therapy and self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG).1

Reduction of Nighttime Hypoglycemia

Dexcom CGM has been shown to reduce median time spent in hypoglycemia by 79% (<60 mg/dL) at night.2

 

Driver of Benefits

The COMISAIR study demononstrates that Dexcom CGM use–not the insulin delivery method–drives A1C reduction. Both MDI patients and those on pump therapy experience significant glycemic benefits when their insulin regimens are augmented by CGM use.1

Medicare Coverage for CGM

Medicare now provides coverage for therapeutic CGM systems (those approved for use in making diabetes treatment decisions). The Dexcom G5® Mobile CGM System is the first and only mobile-enabled CGM system covered as a Medicare benefit.
