FAQs - Dexcom G6
To use the Dexcom G6 CGM, you’ll wear a thin sensor that can stay in place for up to 10 days. That sensor will give you updates on your glucose levels, which you can check with an app on your smart device or with the Dexcom receiver.
Yes, the G6 sensor applicator has a small needle. When applying a Dexcom G6 CGM sensor, you’ll feel a slight pinch as the needle inside the applicator pushes the sensor through your skin to reach the interstitial fluid. The needle retracts into the plastic applicator, which is then discarded. You won’t have a needle under your skin while using the system - just the sensor.
A Dexcom G6 sensor should last for 10 days. If you have trouble keeping your sensor in place, you can use certain liquid adhesives, adhesive patches, or tape to help. For more information, visit Dexcom’s website.
Yes! Going through metal detectors will not damage the Dexcom G6. However, system components should not be X-rayed or taken through Advanced Imaging Technology body scanners.
The Dexcom G6 system’s sensors and transmitters are water-resistant as long as the transmitter is installed properly and can be exposed to water for short periods of time. The receiver is not water-resistant or waterproof.
For patients that are at least two years old, sensors can be worn on the abdomen. Sensors can also be worn on the upper buttocks by patients between the ages of two and 17.
You can sleep while wearing a sensor, but you should make sure you wear the sensor on a site that will likely not be pushed or bumped easily.
The Dexcom G6 system sends glucose data to your receiver or smart device once every five minutes.
When your Dexcom G6 system shows a sensor error, it indicates temporary problems related to glucose measurement and/or communication. If the issue has not resolved itself within three hours, contact Dexcom for technical support.
You can - just make sure to select “Stop Sensor” on your smart device or receiver before you change out your sensor. By doing so, you will be able to avoid any issues with the new sensor.
