Verily and Dexcom are developing miniaturized continuous glucose monitors (CGM) to help people with Type 2 diabetes better manage the condition. Verily and Dexcom are focused on minimizing the cost and size of CGM to enable more people to control their diabetes with timely, actionable information. Verily is building miniaturized sensor electronics on an adhesive patch to make continuous monitoring less disruptive. Smaller and more comfortable CGMs may replace finger sticks in people with Type 2 diabetes, and have the potential to increase behavioural compliance and adherence to treatment regimes.
