About this app

Only use this app if you have the Dexcom G6 or G6 Pro CGM Systems.

Always know your glucose number and where it’s heading with the Dexcom G6 and G6 Pro Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Systems –indicated for diabetes treatment decisions with zero fingersticks and no calibration.* A core feature of the Dexcom G6 and G6 Pro Systems is providing users with alarm/alerts based on their glucose level.

*Fingersticks required for diabetes management decisions if symptoms do not match readings.

Dexcom G6 and G6 Pro provide real-time glucose readings for patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes every five minutes. Dexcom G6 and G6 Pro are indicated for children age 2 years and older.

The Dexcom G6 and G6 Pro Systems provide 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. The only exception is the Urgent Low Alarm, which you can’t turn off.

The Always Sound** setting, which is on by default, 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 Alarm and Alerts, including the Urgent Low Alarm, Low and High Glucose alerts, Urgent Low Soon Alert**, and Rise and Fall Rate alerts**. A Home screen icon shows you if your Alerts will sound or not. For safety, the Urgent Low Alarm and three alerts cannot be silenced: Transmitter Failed, Sensor Failed, and App Stopped.

Other features:

Share** your glucose data with up to ten followers in real time. Followers can monitor your glucose data and trends in real time on their compatible smart device with the Dexcom Follow** app. Share and Follow functions require an internet connection.

Health Connect access so you can share retrospective glucose data with third party apps

Quick Glance allows you to view your glucose data on the lock screen of your smart device


**Not available on Dexcom G6 Pro System

Wear OS Integration allows you to view glucose alerts and alarms from your Wear OS watch.

They sent through an update that makes the text black even when you're in Dark mode. So it's nearly impossible to read your numbers. It's so frustrating because Light mode hurts my eyes at night. But I have to leave it light mood to be able to read my numbers because I wear glasses. And it sounds like they have no intention of fixing this. So frustrating.

Edit: over two months later and this is still not fixed! Seems they don't care. Since the last app update, using dark mode on my pixel 7, the number is barely visible since it's black font on dark grey. This just started happening, have been using dark mode for years. I did contact them, no help, they sent me a replacement sensor, SMH. This really is an easy fix from a technical standpoint, shouldn't take this long!

Over the last few days there was an update that makes it impossible to read the CGM data from the drop down notification when in dark mode. The background is gray and the text is black! There seems to be no way to change this setting in the app. Otherwise everything is great - why was this change made? Clearly others are having the same issue with multiple complaints listed here. Edit: first response from Dexcom was irrelevant to my question. Over a month later, they still haven't fixed this!!
