The official announcement has appeared across all sorts of social media in the last 48 hours, but I thought I’d say something about it here, too…
The FDA approved the Dexcom G6, the new and improved version of their Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) system!
This is particularly exciting, because the G6 comes with many new and exciting features:
- 10-day wear (as opposed to seven days)
- Slimmer and smaller sensor
- Easy-to-use inserter
- Zero calibrations necessary – the system does not require manual blood sugar inputs
Visit the Dexcom website to read about all of the details. And as more information comes out about its availability, stay tuned…
…because you may recognize a familiar name and face along the way!
