Who is eligible for real-time CGM?

Who is eligible for real-time CGM?

Whether using injections, Flash or pump, people with diabetes may benefit from Dexcom real-time CGM.


* If your glucose alerts and readings from Dexcom G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions. 

† NICE TA151 guidance recommends that CGM is used as an adjunct to multiple daily injections (MDI), with insulin pump therapy generally reserved for patients whose condition is not adequately managed by MDI. 

‡ % of CGM readings within ±15 mg/dL of YSI lab reference values ≤ 100mg/dL or ±15% of YSI values > 100mg/dL. 

§ Analogous to %15/15 (see previous footnote). 

II MARD is a statistical measure of accuracy; the lower the number, the better.
