What are the differences between the current Dexcom G4 PLATINUM CGM System and the newly approved Dexcom G4 PLATINUM (Pediatric) CGM System?

  • The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM (Pediatric) CGM System is now formally approved for:
    • Ages 2-17 years
    • Sensor insertion in the upper buttocks as well as abdomen
    • Use of adhesives (as needed) – specifically Skin Tac™ and Mastisol®
  • The G4 PLATINUM (Pediatric) receiver works with the existing G4 PLATINUM sensor and transmitter.
  • The components of the receiver are the same. It has the same settings, alerts and it calculates and displays your sensor glucose readings the same way as the receiver you have now.
  • The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM (Pediatric) Receiver has two additional screens at the ‘Start Sensor’ and ‘Low Alert’ Menu options. These screens are reminders that you should use your blood glucose meter for any treatment decisions and not rely on CGM only to detect hypoglycemia.
