Why Dexcom

See why Dexcom is the right choice for optimizing glucose control.

Committed to Revolutionizing
Diabetes Care

Dexcom is dedicated to developing innovative glucose sensing technology and products to help patients and healthcare providers better manage diabetes.

As the provider of the number one patient-preferred CGM system,1 Dexcom invites you to take a look at the Dexcom G6, a revolution in diabetes management.

  • Mobile CGM system
  • CGM system FDA-approved to replace a blood glucose meter for treatment decisions*2
  • Therapeutic CGM system covered by Medicare
  • Integrated CGM–an FDA-designation meeting rigorous performance standards
*If your glucose alerts and readings from the G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.

Defining a New Standard in Diabetes Management

Smart device compatibility

Smart device sold separately.

Zero fingersticks*

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

Accuracy during critical times

Improved glycemic outcomes (multiple measures)3-7

Real-time glucose data sharing

High and low warnings before they happen


Predictive Alerts & Data Sharing for Active Monitoring

Whether sleeping, exercising, working or at school, there are times when patients can’t check their glucose levels. The customizable low and high glucose warnings, predictive Urgent Low Soon alert, and data sharing capability provided by the Dexcom G6 allow patients or their caregivers to take action and protect against hypo and hyperglycemia.II


Widespread Coverage

Medical Benefit Coverage
Coverage of CGM for type 1 diabetes is offered for 98% of commercially insured patients, and many plans also provide coverage for people with insulin-using type 2 diabetes. Additionally, Dexcom G5 CGM is the first therapeutic CGM system covered as a Medicare benefit.

Pharmacy Benefit Coverage
Dexcom G6 CGM is covered as a pharmacy benefit by the top pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), and we are continuing to expand access through partnerships with regional and national health plans. For patients with CGM covered as a pharmacy benefit, their Dexcom G6 CGM prescription may be processed at local retail pharmacies.


Zero Fingersticks* with Dexcom G6

The factory-calibrated Dexcom G6 gives your patients the freedom to manage diabetes without the hassle of fingersticks for calibrations or treatment decisions.*

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

Dexcom CGM Patient Benefits

Patient Benefits

Whether type 1 or type 2, injections or pump–your patient may benefit.

*% of CGM readings within ±15 mg/dL of YSI lab reference values ≤ 100mg/dL or ±15% of YSI values > 100mg/dL.
Analogous to %15/15 (see previous footnote).
MARD is a statistical measure of accuracy; the lower the number, the better.
