The Dexcom G6 Receiver is a device used to display glucose readings and is part of the Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System. It allows users to view their glucose information at a glance on the touchscreen display. It provides real-time glucose readings and delivers alerts and alarms for pending highs and lows.

Dexcom G6 receivers may be used as the display device instead of the Dexcom G6 app available for compatible smart devices. The receiver typically needs to be recharged every 2 days using an electrical outlet, rather than a computer or laptop port. A full charge may take up to 3 hours.

The receiver displays and stores the readings. The receiver can be the Dexcom receiver, your smart phone (using the Dexcom app), or an insulin pump that is compatible with the Dexcom G6 system.

Use and Dosage

To use the Dexcom G6 Receiver, charge the receiver using the provided cable and adapter. Press and hold the Power button for two seconds to turn on the receiver. Follow the setup screens on the receiver to input the transmitter serial number and complete the initial configuration. Use the one-touch applicator to insert the small sensor just beneath the skin. Then, attach the transmitter to the sensor. The transmitter sends glucose data wirelessly to the receiver.

Once the sensor and transmitter are properly in place, start the sensor on the receiver by following the instructions provided in the Dexcom G6 user guide or manual. This step enables the receiver to begin displaying your glucose readings. The Dexcom G6 Receiver will display your glucose information on its touchscreen. You can view trends, set up alerts and alarms for high and low glucose levels, and use the receiver to make diabetes treatment decisions. Note that the Dexcom G6 system provides real-time glucose readings.

  • The Dexcom G6 Receiver may have compatibility limitations with certain devices. Check the compatibility of your smart device or insulin pump with the Dexcom G6 Receiver before use.
  • The Dexcom G6 Receiver has a smaller size and a more vibrant, easier-to-read display compared to previous models. However, handle it with care to avoid damage.
  • The use of the Dexcom G6 system, including the receiver, requires a prescription from a healthcare professional. Follow the instructions and guidance provided by your healthcare team regarding the use of the Dexcom G6 Receiver.
  • Some individuals may experience skin irritation or redness at the sensor insertion site. Follow proper skin preparation and sensor insertion techniques as recommended by Dexcom to minimize the risk of skin irritation.
  • While the Dexcom G6 system provides continuous glucose monitoring, be aware that there may be discrepancies between the sensor readings and actual blood glucose levels. Perform regular fingerstick blood glucose checks to verify the accuracy of the readings.
  • The Dexcom G6 sensor has a limited lifespan and will need to be replaced after a certain number of days (typically 10 days). Follow the recommended sensor wear time and replace the sensor as instructed by Dexcom.
  • The Dexcom G6 Receiver may be susceptible to interference from electronic devices or electromagnetic fields. Keep the receiver away from sources of interference, such as cell phones, magnets, or airport security scanners, to ensure accurate readings.
