Friends for Life® Winter 2020 Sponsors
Dexcom, Inc., headquartered in San Diego, CA, is dedicated to developing innovative glucose sensing technology and products to help patients and healthcare providers better manage diabetes. The Dexcom G6™ Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System does not require fingersticks for calibration or diabetes treatment decisions* and features simple, one-touch sensor insertion. The System provides exceptional accuracy with an overall MARD of 9.0%† and features an Urgent Low Soon alert that can warn users 20 minutes in advance of severe hypoglycemia (55 mg/dL). Dexcom is the only provider of CGM systems indicated for children ages 2 years and older. Please visit www.dexcom.com.
*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.
†MARD is a statistical measure of accuracy; the lower the number, the better.
