How it Works

Every 5 minutes, up to 288 times a day, the Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System provides a real-time look at your glucose readings. Trend arrows and vivid colors displayed on your smart device show you the speed and direction your glucose is heading – so it’s easier to make diabetes management decisions.*

 

* If your glucose alerts and readings from the G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.
