Dexcom G5® Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring System
Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) unveils what no meter can. While meters give a number for a single point in time, CGM provides glucose information by showing where your glucose is, where it’s going, and how fast it’s getting there. High and low alerts can be set enabling easier control of your levels. Better yet, you can eliminate the need for confirmatory finger prick tests, for daily glucose management decisions with the Dexcom G5. The Dexcom Share app allows you to share your data with up to 5 people with compatible devices using the Dexcom Follow® App! It doesn’t get much better than this!
Flexibility of Two Monitoring Devices
Although the System is a fully-mobile platform, a Dexcom CGM receiver can be used with this system. This gives you the freedom to monitor your glucose data on your smart device with the Mobile app or by using a G5 Mobile receiver, which ever you prefer.
I have not had the opportunity to trial the G5, however I have learned a lot about it in groups and through friends. This is an example from a friend who’s son was struggling with his control. You will see the incredible progress over his first 6 weeks using the Dexcom G5. Seeing the full picture allowed them to tweak basals, bolus, timings etc and this is on Multiple Daily Injections.www.dexcom.com/en-GB
The G5 Mobile System requires a new Dexcom G5 Transmitter every 3 months, whilst also requiring the use of Dexcom G4/G5 sensors, each with a warranty of 7 days, although many people can extend the use considerably, thus, reducing the overall cost if self-funding.
The regular price (as of April 2016) for a Replacement Dexcom G5 Transmitter is £350 Ex VAT (3 month warranty) for existing customers and after 31st July 2017 for new customers also.
The regular price for a Dexcom G5 Receiver kit is £275 Ex VAT (1 year warranty)
The regular price for a Box of 4 G4/G5 Sensors is £205 Ex VAT (7 day warranty from first use)
* A minimum of 2 finger prick tests a day is still required for calibration. The system may require more.

Early data from the G6 has been very impressive. In one study, a 49-person trial testing the G6 sensor over 10 days of wear, 96 percent of blood glucose readings were within 20 mg/dl (1.1 mmol/l) of the true glucose value, making it the most accurate device Dexcom has released.
