Dexcom G6: App Review

Description

Many apps rank their effectiveness through reviews or scores. However, many do not receive FDA approval for their effectiveness. Dexcom G6 is an FDA-approved app that can help you manage your diabetes with your FitBit or smartwatch.

“Dexcom G6 is the FDA-approved way to provide you with continuous glucose monitoring paired through your FitBit and/or smartwatch.”

Overview

The beauty of multiple technology devices isn’t just a single function but their ability to cross-function with one another. Dexcom G6 is a collaborative app that pairs with your FitBit and smartphone for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). We’ll elaborate more below on its effectiveness but, for now, the only 3 letters you need to know about this app are ‘FDA.’ That’s right: Dexcom G6 actually sought out and received FDA approval for its CGM functions.

Real-Time Glucose Readings

The innovation of Dexcom G6 begins with the continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) done in real-time and in an easy-to-read display. You can quickly glance at the smart device and know your glucose numbers. You even have the ability to see trends in your CGM that predict where your glucose readings are heading and how quickly they’re reaching these prediction points.

Dexcom G6 even has customizable alerts to notify you when your levels are getting too low or too high. If your child has diabetes, it’s the only CGM measuring system approved for children ages 2 years and older.

Zero Fingersticks

A relief to those who dread the painful pricking of your fingers to read your glucose levels, Dexcom G6 does not require fingersticks. Many other other apps and measuring systems have tried and failed. This is the only one that has succeeded in not requiring fingersticks or calibration to make decisions regarding CGM, approved by the FDA.

A1C Reduction

Dexcom CGM system is proven to lower A1C and reduce the possibility of hypoglycemic events occuring. This is based on the exceptional performance of the Dexcom G4 and G5 CGM systems. With the new release of the G6, you can expect further advancements to occur in lowering A1C levels and having fewer hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic incidents.
