High and Low Alerts

Babies aren’t great at giving warnings about a kick to the ribs or a punch in the bladder...but the Dexcom G6 customisable alerts can let you know if your glucose is going too high or too low helping you to stay in range.

Hear Olivia's Story

Olivia tragically lost her first baby at 8 weeks pregnant at a time when she was experiencing but not registering an increased number of hyperglycaemic events.
During her second pregnancy, she started using Dexcom CGM, which helped her to keep tighter glycaemic control and spend more time in range throughout her pregnancy. She welcomed her little boy in September 2019.
