Dexcom CGM

Leading the way to a new standard of care.

Use of a Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System has been shown to lower A1C.1 Studies have also shown that a lower A1C reduces microvascular and macrovascular complications associated with type 1 diabetes mellitus.2,3

20% Reduction in Cardiovascular Risk<sup>*</sup>2

76% Reduction in Retinopathy Risk<sup>†</sup>3

50% Reduction in Kidney Disease Risk3

*Reduction observed during a mean follow-up of 17 years. †Reduction observed during a mean follow-up of 6 years.

Improved Glycemic Control

CGM use has shown improvements across 29 indices of glycemic control and glycemic variability,5 and lowers A1C and risk of hypoglycemia, regardless of delivery method.6

Insight Before Insulin for Informed Diabetes Treatment Decisions

The unique value of continuous information, raising glucose awareness7 and lowering A1C, regardless of insulin delivery method,6 makes a strong case for prescribing a Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System before pump therapy.

The Cost of Poor Diabetes Control

CGM delivers many of the benefits of complex care management programs, but with greater cost transparency.

Rethink Care Management

Lowering A1C can unlock clinical and financial benefits.
