Dexcom CGM use lowers HbA1c1,2

Both the DIAMOND study and COMISAIR study showed that Dexcom CGM use can help to reduce HbA1c.1,2 Beck et al (2017) and Soupal et al. (2016) also found that Dexcom CGM use led to more time spent within target glucose range.1,2


Dexcom CGM helps to reduce the risk of hypoglycaemia3,4

Heinemann et al. (2018) and Reddy et al. (2018) reported that CGM was an effective tool in minimising the risk of hypoglycaemia.3,4 Specifically, Reddy et al. (2018)  concluded that “CGM more effectively reduces time spent in hypoglycaemia in people with Type 1 diabetes and impaired awareness of hypoglycaemia compared with flash glucose monitoring.”


Dexcom CGM use improves quality of life and wellbeing5

Lind et al (2017) demonstrated “a significant improvement in subjective well-being and treatment satisfaction in adults using CGM in comparison with conventional therapy.” 5 Additionally, this study also showed a reduction in hypoglycaemia fear when using CGM.5


Dexcom G6 provides exceptional accuracy6

Wadwa et al (2018) concluded that Dexcom G6’s factory-calibrated sensor was able to provide accurate readings throughout the life of the sensor (10 days).6
