Empower veterans to take control of their diabetes

Dexcom G6 is a small, wearable sensor that sends glucose data directly to your patient's smart device,* making it easier for them to manage their diabetes — without fingersticks. It also sends patients alerts when they go high or low, empowering them to make better treatment decisions.
And may be covered for qualified veterans.

 

If your patients’ glucose alerts and readings from the Dexcom G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, they will need to use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.
