Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) is a system that measures glucose levels continuously in order to monitor levels and allows the user to detect potential patterns throughout the day and night in real-time.
Unlike fingerprick tests, which provide a measurement for a single point in time, CGM provides dynamic glucose information by depicting trends and suggesting where one’s glucose levels may be heading. By using CGM, one could notice and respond to falling glucose levels before hypoglycaemia or monitor patterns while asleep.
Studies have shown the following benefits of CGM;
Dexcom G7 is the latest technology in the Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) product line. The outstanding accuracy of Dexcom G7 allows you to make treatment decisions with no calibrations required, which means ZERO fingerpricks!^

Note: Dexcom G7 is not currently compatible with the t:slim X2 with Control-IQ technology. The teams at Dexcom and Tandem Diabetes Care are working hard to bring this update to customers, and as soon as we have an update here, we will let everyone know.
If you are using the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Control-IQ technology as part of your diabetes management plan and want to see your glucose values on your insulin pump, to ensure your pumping experience is not affected, we recommend continuing with Dexcom G6 for the time being. Alternatively, Dexcom G7 can also be used as a standalone system with a compatible display device.†
