Founded in 1999, Dexcom Inc. is a young company with innovative products, mainly aimed at the treatment and support of people with diabetes. Dexcom is a company that develops, manufactures and distributes continuous glucose monitoring systems for diabetes management. It operates internationally from the United States.
The Dexcom G5 is a compact CGM system that works seamlessly to display real-time glucose activity on the display device of your choice, giving you more convenience and discretion to manage your glucose on the go. The Dexcom G5 is a discrete sensor that measures glucose values just under the skin. With the Dexcom G5 you limit the number of times you have to prick yourself to only twice a day. You can use your phone or your smartwatch as a reader, but you can also use a separate reader for the Dexcom G5.
Dexcom G6 is the successor to the Dexcom G5 and there is one big difference with the Dexcom G5: with the G6 you no longer need to calibrate! Inserting the sensor is a lot more pleasant with the Dexcom G6 than with its predecessors Dexcom G4 and Dexcom G5. With the Dexcom G6, insertion is done with the simple push of a button.
