CGM Basics

Will using Dexcom ONE change my diabetes management routine?

Last Updated · September 28, 2021

If you’re already familiar with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems, Dexcom ONE may or may not notably affect your day-to-day routine. If you've never used a CGM system, you can benefit from the significant advantages that the Dexcom ONE offers compared to other glucose monitoring methods, like fingersticks with blood glucose meters.*

Some benefits of using the Dexcom ONE are:

  • Knowing where your glucose was and where it is going
  • Getting immediate feedback on your lifestyle decisions
  • Making treatment decisions using your Dexcom ONE
  • Decreasing the pain and hassle from frequent blood glucose testing, sparing the fingertips*

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