DexCom, a provider of real-time continuous glucose monitoring for people with diabetes, announced today the FDA has cleared the next-generation Dexcom G7 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System for people with all types of diabetes ages two years and older.
“There’s a reason Dexcom has the best-selling real-time CGM on the market,” said Kevin Sayer, chairman, president and CEO of Dexcom. “For more than a decade, we’ve pioneered generation after generation of sensing technology that consistently delivers improved accuracy, reliability and a simpler user experience, giving people greater control of their diabetes. When we set out to design G7, our goal was simple: to make the most powerful, easy-to-use CGM available for people with diabetes, whether they have Type 1 or Type 2. G7 delivers squarely on that promise. And now that it has been cleared by the FDA, we look forward to making G7 commercially available in the coming months.”
Dexcom is working with its insulin pump partners to integrate Dexcom G7 into current and future automated insulin delivery systems as quickly as possible.
Dexcom G7 offers a system with a small, all-in-one wearable, completely redesigned mobile app and no fingersticks or scanning required. Dexcom G7 also offers a suite of customizable alerts that can warn of high or low glucose levels and help users spend more time in range. The system features a predictive low alert that provides a 20-minute advance warning of potentially dangerous low glucose levels so users can act quickly to avoid a hypoglycemic event. This critical feature continues to be at the forefront of the Dexcom experience, with more than 52 million Urgent Low Soon alerts acknowledged – more than 11 million of those in the middle of the night. Users can also share information with loved ones and care teams anywhere, anytime through remote monitoring and reporting capabilities.
