Sample Dexcom CGM

Dexcom Sample Experience

Say hello to Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Systems—and goodbye to fingersticks* for your insulin-using patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The Dexcom Sample Experience is a no-cost sampling program that helps introduce healthcare professionals and their patients to the features and benefits of Dexcom CGM, while offering actionable insights that can inform your treatment decisions. Request a Dexcom sample kit to get patients started with continuous glucose monitoring. 


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