Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems provide real-time glucose readings, throughout the day and night, allowing people with diabetes to know their glucose levels and trends with a touch of a button. CGM is a unique technology that has been proven through clinical studies to help improve diabetes management and clinical outcomes as well as maintain that improvement over time. If CGM is worn on a near-daily basis, the on-going benefits are:

  • Reduction in Haemoglobin A1c without increasing low blood glucose events1
  • Reduced time spent in the high and low glucose ranges1
  • Reduced events of severe hypoglycaemia (<3.1mmol/L)1
  • More time in your target glucose ranges1
  • NEW Dexcom G6 

    Dexcom G6 is the latest technology in the Dexcom continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) range.

    • The need for blood glucose meter calibrations is eliminated, meaning you can make treatment decisions with zero fingerpricks*!
    • Slimmer+ and water-resistant sensor indicated for 10-day sensor wear!
    • Approved for use on an Apple or Android compatible smart device^
    • Patients can share their data with up to 5 followers/loved ones
    • Approved for use in children 2 years and older
    • Customised alarms with a fixed 3.1 mmol/L hypo alert feature
    • Compatible with Tandem t:slim X2 Insulin Pump with Basal-IQ Technology
*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.
