What is Dexcom Follow?
Dexcom Follow is the perfect diabetes companion to your loved one’s Dexcom G6, connecting you to those nearest and dearest to you even when they’re far away. Through secure wireless connections, the Dexcom Follow app allows you to view and follow the glucose levels, trends, and data of your loved ones who are using the Dexcom G6 app. Use this app if your loved one is sharing data from their Dexcom G6 CGM app.
The Sharer will need to send an invitation to allow you to connect after you have installed the Follow app. Once a Sharer’s invitation is accepted, the Follower can see:
- Sharer’s glucose reading
- Sharer’s trend arrow showing their glucose speed and direction
- Glucose notifications of changes, like a Low or High
Both the Sharer’s and Follower’s smart devices must have a mobile data connection or Wi-Fi. For a list of smart devices compatible with Dexcom apps, see our Dexcom Compatibility page.
