Parents of kids with type 1 diabetes - meet your new superpower.

When it comes to managing type 1 diabetes, knowledge really can be a superpower. With the Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System, you can always know your child's number and where it's headed with zero fingersticks* -- when they're at home, at school, even at a sleepover.

*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.

Customizable Alerts
