The New Dexcom G7

The Dexcom G7 is a newer generation continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system that offers several advancements over traditional glucose monitoring methods. Here are a few key differences:

Size and Wearability: The Dexcom G7 is smaller and more discreet compared to traditional CGM systems, making it easier and more comfortable to wear throughout the day.

No Fingerstick Calibration: Unlike traditional methods that often require periodic fingerstick blood glucose measurements for calibration, the Dexcom G7 is factory calibrated, eliminating the need for routine fingersticks.

Longer Sensor Wear: The G7 sensor can be worn for up to 14 days, which is longer than some traditional CGM sensors, reducing the frequency of sensor changes.

Simplified Insertion: The G7 features an auto-applicator that simplifies the sensor insertion process, making it easier for users to self-insert the sensor.

Real-time Glucose Data: The Dexcom G7 continuously provides real-time glucose readings, trend arrows, and alerts, allowing individuals to monitor their glucose levels more effectively and make timely adjustments.

It’s worth noting that the specifics of the Dexcom G7 may evolve over time, as technology and advancements progress in the field of glucose monitoring.
