Can I wear Dexcom G7 through airport security or while flying?

At security checkpoints
You can wear your Dexcom G7 sensor when going through walk-through metal detectors and Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) body scanners. Alternatively, you may ask for hand-wanding or a full-body pat-down and visual inspection. Ask for visual inspection of any part of your Dexcom G7 in the baggage scanning machine.
Most security check points require you to temporarily give up your smart device* and receiver. When you are without a display device in a security check point area, use your Blood Glucose (BG) meter for treatment decisions.
To help you prepare for airport security checks and screening procedures for air travel, review any relevant airport websites and travel updates before your trip.
On the plane
To use your Dexcom G7 app or receiver to get sensor glucose information while on the plane, follow these instructions:
  • App: Switch smartphone to airplane mode, then turn Bluetooth on
  • Receiver: Keep receiver on
Contact your airline for their policies. Always follow instructions from the airplane crew while on the plane.
