Dexcom G6 CGM System for personal use
Dexcom G6 is the first real-time, integrated Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (iCGM) that is authorized to work interoperably with a range of connected insulin pens and hybrid closed-loop system partners.† It features a 10-day sensor and requires zero fingersticks‡ or scanning, supporting greater freedom and flexibility in diabetes management for patients ages 2 years and older. Dexcom G6 is clinically proven to lower A1C, reduce hyper- and hypoglycemia, and increase time in range,1,2,10-12 leading to better quality of life.3 The Dexcom G6 app is available in English and Spanish on compatible smart devices.*
‡If your glucose alerts and readings from Dexcom G6 CGM System do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.

Dexcom G6 CGM System components
Using the auto-applicator, patients or caregivers can insert the sensor and then snap in the transmitter. Once the system completes warm-up they will be able to view real-time glucose data from the transmitter via a patient's selected display device.*
Provides simple sensor insertion at the push of a button. A patient can apply the sensor on their own by following the instructions for use.
Monitors interstitial glucose levels through a small wire inserted just underneath the skin, sending a signal to the transmitter (10-day lifespan).
Fastened on top of the sensor; sends data wirelessly to the wearer's compatible display device* (3-month lifespan).
Allows patients to view their real-time glucose data and trends. Dexcom G6 also enables patients to receive a suite of alerts, an Urgent Low alarm, and other notifications on their display device*, which can help warn them of high or low glucose levels.
*Smart devices sold separately.
why prescribe the Dexcom G6?
Dexcom G6 removes the burden of having to fingerstick or scan for your patients to receive real-time glucose readings.
‡If your glucose alerts and readings from Dexcom G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.
Representative in-clinic session data shows how calibrations can result in improved, worsening, or no effects on the accuracy of the Dexcom G6 CGM System. It supports the notion that overall, the absence of calibrations does not impact the ability of Dexcom G6 to provide accurate glucose readings.5
Patients show sustained glycemic benefit with long-term real-time CGM (rtCGM) use.#,6 Dexcom rtCGM use is clinically proven to lower A1C, reduce hyper- and hypoglycemia, and increase time in range.2,3
The Dexcom G6 sensor prevents clinically significant interference from acetaminophen, and readings can be used to make diabetes treatment decisions when taking up to a maximum acetaminophen dose of 1,000 mg every 6 hours.*
*Taking a higher does than 1,000 mg every 6 hours may affect Dexcom G6 readings.
DIaMonD Study1 shows that Dexcom CGM use improves glucose control in adults with type 1 diabetes using insulin injections.

¶MARD is a statistical measure of accuracy.
#Separate Dexcom Follow app required. Internet connectivity required for data sharing. Followers should always confirm readings on the Dexcom G6 app or receiver before making treatment decisions. Followers must have compatible smart devices to use the Dexcom Follow app.
**Patient must first sync their Dexcom G6 data with the Dexcom Clarity app and consent to share their data with their healthcare provider. An internet connection is required for patients to send their glucose data to Dexcom Clarity via a compatible smart device: dexcom.com/compatibility.
‡‡This predictive alert can be triggered with impending hypoglycemia (glucose of 55 mg/dL or below is predicted to occur within the next 20 minutes).
