Dexcom 6 Is A Big Step Forward

I currently wear the Dexcom 5 Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) and really like what it does for me. I am now convinced that every Type I diabetic should be wearing a CGM. It gives you so much better information and it's almost simultaneous (5 minute delay). 

  • The Dexcom 6 is now being rolled out and the early reviews are very promising. 
  • No calibration needed (no finger pricks)
  • Smaller form size 
  • Can install on your arm instead of your abdomen

Think I better talk with my endocrinologist and see about when it will be available for me! Here is a great article about it.
