I lost my Dexcom sensor code. What do I do?
Without your sensor code, you’ll need to calibrate twice after your 2-hour sensor warmup is complete, a third time 12 hours later, a fourth time 12 hours after that, and then once every 24 hours. For more information on what a sensor code is and why you need one to use Dexcom G6, click here.
What is a sensor code and why do I need one?
A sensor code allows you to use the Dexcom G6 CGM System without the need for fingersticks or calibrations.* When you start a new sensor, you must enter a code into your display device.
Do I have to put the sensor code in every time I start a new sensor?
You will need to put in the sensor code from the sensor each time you start a new one.
