Stay One Step Ahead of Diabetes with Dexcom CGM

Introducing the only CGM approved for kids as young as 2 years old


Have No Fear, Dexcom is Here!

Meet the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM, a Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system with “super powers” to help you and your child manage diabetes together.

Let your child spend more time “saving the world” while you enjoy the peace of mind every superhero’s parent deserves.

What is CGM

If you're looking for optimal glucose control, look no further. Only CGM keeps you and your child One Step Ahead of diabetes.

Diabetes and your growing child can present unique challenges. But with the Dexcom CGM, you and your child will see glucose trends and data to help you, your child and your healthcare support team make informed decisions.

A Number Isn't Enough

Even if your child tests frequently, a lot can happen between fingersticks. A number alone can’t tell you which way your child’s glucose is headed and how fast it’s getting there.

With Dexcom CGM, you can stop the guesswork and worries that come with making decisions based on a number. CGM allows you and your child to make confident and informed decisions for optimal diabetes management.

If you saw this number, what would you or your child do?

If you/your child saw this instead, would you have done anything differently

How Does CGM Work?

CGM unveils what no meter can. Unlike fingersticks that give a number for a single point in time, CGM provides dynamic glucose information by showing where your child’s glucose is, where it’s going, and how fast it’s getting there.

Dexcom's CGM consists of 3 parts:

Small Sensor that measures glucose levels just underneath the skin.
Transmitter that is fastened on top of the sensor and sends data wirelessly to the receiver.
Receiver displays your child’s glucose trends in vivid colors so you can easily see when it’s high, low or within range.

Not Just Any CGM, It's a Dexcom CGM

Avery's Story

The following is an actual letter written by Avery's parents.

Diabetes can change in a heartbeat and go from normal to emergency faster than you can blink. But 'Dexie' was keeping watch over our slumbering girl. We will never forget those three little beeps...
that saved our daughter's life.
We truly thought she was going to die.
Because of you, we are not totally afraid to sleep at night.
Because of you, she will grow up and have a future.

Because of you, she is alive.
