Dex­com G5

The mo­bile CGM sys­tem for di­a­bet­ics.

APC Australia - - Tech Brief -

Pri­mar­ily used for peo­ple with Type 1 di­a­betes (the one you can’t pre­vent), the G5 is a “dis­crete sen­sor lo­cated just un­der­neath the skin” on the ab­domen and pro­vides “real-time glu­cose read­ings […] ev­ery five min­utes”. That glu­cose data is then sent to the wearer’s phone or watch to pro­vide valu­able in­for­ma­tion about their lev­els, all with­out hav­ing to whip out a nee­dle! It nat­u­rally also sends alerts if it de­tects lev­els are trend­ing too high or too low.
