Proven accuracy 8-10
Real-time makes living with diabetes easier. A recent study4 involving 246 adults living with type 1 diabetes proved that, compared to scanning devices, use of a real-time CGM system with a suite of alerts resulted in:
- Increased time in range
- Decreased HbA1c
- Less fear of hypoglycaemia
- Improved well-being
Improved quality of life without scanning
A recent study11 showed that people living with diabetes relying on a system that requires scanning were not meeting recommendations for time spent in range,12 despite scanning on average 40 times per day!
How does it work?
Dexcom real-time CGM systems consist of 3 main componenets.
Easy insertion with the simple push of a button means people with diabetes can apply the sensor themselves.
*Sensor and Applicator sold as a single unit
Sensor & Transmitter
