What is a glucose sensor?

A glucose sensor is the part of a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system that is inserted under the skin and measures your glucose (sugar) levels. It sends your glucose data wirelessly to the system receiver or a compatible smart device, so you can track your blood sugar highs and lows at regular intervals, and make informed treatment decisions. The Dexcom G5® Mobile CGM System is the first FDA-approved CGM system that lets you make treatment decisions without pricking your finger.

*CGM-based treatment requires fingersticks for calibration, if patient is taking acetaminophen, or if symptoms/expectations do not match CGM readings, and if not performed, may result in hypoglycemia.
