Dexcom’s newest diabetes device can read your blood sugar without any blood, and it’s a life-changer


It is hard to say how much the G6 system will cost you, as it will vary under different insurance plans. Dexcom also accepts out-of-pocket payments, and while the company hasn’t revealed the price yet, my G5 costs around $800 up front plus $35 for each sensor, so you can expect to spend a couple thousand dollars a year total.

But I think the benefit of having one outweighs the cost.

Being able to peer inside your body and know what your blood sugar is 24/7 is amazing feature, and this device allows me to do it more discreetly and with fewer finger pricks. It’s the best CGM I’ve ever tried and I think that you’ll like it too.

All this being said — if your glucose alerts and readings from the G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.

The Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring System will be available in June 2018.
