Always know your glucose number and where it’s heading with the Dexcom G6® Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System – Approved for diabetes treatment decisions with zero fingersticks and no calibration.*

*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.

Only use this app if you have the Dexcom G6 CGM System.

With Dexcom G6, always know your glucose number with just a quick glance at your compatible smartphone or smartwatch. For a list of compatible devices visit Dexcom G6 provides real-time glucose readings for patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes every five minutes. Dexcom G6 is approved for children age 2 and older.

The Dexcom G6 System provides personalized trend alerts right on your smart device and lets you see when your glucose levels are going too low, or too high, so you can better manage your diabetes. The Alert Schedule feature lets you schedule and customize a second set of alerts. For example, you can set the schedule to match your work hours and have different alert settings during the rest of the day. Custom alert sounds are available, including a Vibrate-Only option on the phone for glucose alerts other than the Urgent Low Alarm.

The Always Sound setting allows you to receive certain Dexcom CGM Alerts even if your phone sound is off, set to vibrate, or in Do Not Disturb mode. This will allow you to silence calls or texts but still receive audible CGM Alerts, including Low and High Glucose alert, Urgent Low Soon Alert, Urgent Low Alarm, and Rise and Fall Rate alerts. Please note that when your phone is set to Silent or Do Not Disturb, you will not receive any audible alerts for Signal Loss. Always Sound is on by default. A Home screen icon shows you if your Alerts will sound or not. For safety, three alerts cannot be silenced: Urgent Low Alarm, Transmitter Failure, and Sensor Failure.

My Precious thing ,

Could be better

Having used other apps to record diabetes life, this app comes short for recording daily events. It needs a few additional event options: bedtime and comments showing reasons why bgl went ‘wrong’ or forgot insulting etc. Diarising helps. Also notes on what was eaten to have caused highs or lows attached to carbs event.
Just suggestions, thanks.

Appalling service

A company based in the health industry who doesn't bother to keep their App up to date where people's lives are at stake, with the continual annoyance of being told that the software has not been tested with this version of iOS - what irresponsible............. They do not do any updates to my knowledge once the initial creation of the App is hopefully working. I do not know how they are allowed to remain in business.


P.S. I would have spoke direct to them, except there is no way to do so.

Needs work but better than nothing

App needs better development. Regularly disconnects or alerts to notify it has stopped running. Would be good to have the ability to add custom events.
