The Dexcom G6 CGM System now has CE Marking across Europe, for wear on the back of the upper arm, offering people more choice on how to comfortably wear their device.

The Dexcom G6 uses a small, wearable sensor and transmitter to continuously measure and send glucose levels wirelessly to a dedicated receiver or compatible smart device, giving real-time glucose data without the need for a finger-prick test. The system also offers customizable alerts and alarms to help avoid dangerous low and high blood sugar events.

The new approval means people in Europe over the age of 2 will be able to wear their Dexcom G6 on the back of the upper arm or the abdomen. Those up to the age of 17 can also wear it on the upper buttocks.

Talk to your diabetes team if you have any questions about these new choices. For more information about the Dexcom G6 CGM System, go to
