What is the Dexcom G6 Sensor and what is it used for?

The Dexcom G6 Glucose Sensor is a tiny disposable device attached to a thin wire that’s inserted just under the skin. It’s applied using a Dexcom G6 auto-applicator to stay attached to your abdomen for up to 10 days. It lets you check your blood sugar continuously in real-time without sticking your finger. It works as a part of the Dexcom G6 CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring System). It’s intended to be used by people over 2 years old.

What you should know before using the Dexcom G6 Sensor

This device is not for use in pregnant people, critically ill people, or people on dialysis. Taking very high doses of acetaminophen (Tylenol) greater than 1000 mg every 6 hours will interfere with the Dexcom G6 sensor’s ability to check your blood sugar.

Change your insertion site so that it’s at least 3 inches away from the previous insertion site to prevent skin irritation. Do not apply the sensor to any area near waistbands, bones, scars, tattoos or near places that may be easily bumped or rubbed while sleeping. Wash and dry hands and insertion site before inserting the sensor to prevent infection. The receiver must stay within 20 feet of the sensor with no obstructions to provide glucose readings.
