Dexcom’s Next Continuous Glucose Monitor, the G5


Dexcom's Next Continuous Glucose Monitor, the G5The Dexcom G4 may be new to your diabetes repertoire (perhaps you haven’t even upgraded from the Seven Plus), but Dexcom is always looking ahead.  Peeking at the future of continuous glucose monitoring is incredibly exciting as technology advances so quickly.  Changes in diabetes technology holds the promise of easing the burden of daily life with type 1 diabetes.

This interview on the Dexcom G5 is a must watch.   I’m sure you will be as excited as I was if you live with type 1 diabetes.  I’ve been having visions of looking at my phone and seeing not only my blood sugars, but my daughters as well.  I can’t imagine how amazing it would be to see her live CGM readings on my phone while she is at school.  Who knows what this next version will hold in store, but it may do away with the current receiver which eliminates one annoying thing to carry.

When this next version gets FDA approval, locating our lost CGM’s will be as easy as a phone call.  If you can locate your phone… you have your CGM!

    Very exciting visual, indeed! Hope they’re not too far off from getting it finalized and ready for FDA, but who knows… looking forward to that, and of course seeing all the integrated devices that use the Dex sensors.

  2. My Doctor wants me on the G5 technology as soon as possible. My sugar drops so fast, that I get in trouble a lot. I realize My husband and I will need I-phones but I need this technology as soon as possible. Please call me at 620-228-2587 or e-mail me at the above e-mail address. Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
