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.

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.
