More Insight Than Monitoring Alone

Unlike a single reading from a blood glucose meter, Dexcom G6 and G7 provides continuous, real-time information about the direction of glucose change. That means your patient can get timely feedback on how nutrition, activity, and insulin impact their glucose numbers so they can make more informed diabetes treatment decisions.* CGM is a powerful therapy management tool that can inform better diabetes treatment decisions, ultimately leading to tighter glycemic control than using a blood glucose meter alone.2

*If your glucose alerts and readings from Dexcom G6 and G7 CGM Systems do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.
