Dexcom G6 glucose monitoring system gives diabetics control
That is why continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMS) are gaining importance.
CGMS lessens the burden on diabetic patients who need to constantly monitor their blood sugar levels. In the recently released 2021 standards of medical care in diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) highlighted the importance of blood sugar level testing using CGMS.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is also actively recommending CGMS as an alternative to face-to-face checkups.
There are two types of CGMS: Real-time CGMS and intermittentlyscanned CGMS. Real time CGMS automatically checks the user’s blood sugar levels and transmits the data to a smartphone where the record is plotted on a graph in real-time. Intermittently-scanned CGMS checks the blood sugar levels only when a smartphone scans the sensor.
Due to the difference in the measurement method, real-time CGMS is suitable for patients with type 1 diabetes or advanced disease, whereas intermittently-scanned CGMS is for those with comparatively mild cases.
Dexcom G6, classified as real-time CGMS by ADA, does not require any blood or device scanning.
Equipped with cutting-edge technology, Dexcom G6 measures the patient’s glucose level every five minutes with accuracy and sends the data to a smartphone automatically. Patients do not have to draw blood or scan a sensor to keep track of their glucose levels in detail.
Moreover, Dexcom G6 alerts users 20 minutes before the glucose level reaches 55 milligrams per decilitre, which makes it handy to use during daily activities. Even pediatric patients and first-time users can easily wear
Dexcom G6, thanks to its one-touch sensor placement and small size. Dexcom G6 comes at a reasonable price for type 1 diabetes patients who are eligible for national health care coverage.
Huons, the official distributor of Dexcom G6 in Korea, provides a broad range of personalized services on its specialized website Hu:on Diabetes Care, at www.cgms.co.kr.
Furthermore, anyone can register for a Dexcom G6 education session, with practical information regarding CGMS and tips on how to wear the device and use a mobile application taught by a registered nurse.
