More time to play

The Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System sends real-time glucose readings to a smartphone† so with a quick glance you can know where their glucose is headed and how fast – all with zero finger pricks* or scanning.
Using the Dexcom Clarity app on your compatible smartphone* or computer can also support you to manage your child’s diabetes more effectively. Users can identify glucose patterns and share data with a Paediatrics Diabetes Team or other health professionals to monitor improvements, allowing your child to be just like other kids on the playground.

More peace of mind no matter where they are

Alerts to help keep them in range night and day

Customisable high and low alerts help you keep them in range; the fixed Urgent Low alarm tells you when they are dangerously low and a unique predictive alert can warn you up to 20 minutes before a serious low - so you can both sleep a little easier.§

Flexibility and convenient treatment choices

The Dexcom G6 system can also autonomously communicate with certain digitally-connected devices, including automated insulin dosing (AID) systems, like the Tandem t:slim and CamAPS FX.

Dexcom Warrior Ava

Ava was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the age of 5.
Before Dexcom G6 she wasn’t able to go round to her friends' houses to play any more because they weren’t able to care for her.
“Now she has Dexcom G6, she is able to do all of these things again because I can see her levels from home. She also knows what she needs to do when her alarms sound which gives her some independence at managing her condition”.
