CGM unveils what no meter can. While meters give a number for a single point in time, CGM provides dynamic glucose information by showing where your glucose is, where it’s going, and how fast it’s getting there. Better yet, with Dexcom G5 Mobile, you can eliminate the need for confirmatory fingersticks, for daily glucose management decisions.*
Despite new, Dexcom G5 prices making the system cheaper than ever the set up costs for Dexcom are still considerably high. For the Dexcom G5 you will need to purchase a receiver, a transmitter and sensors. To purchase the receiver, transmitter and 2 Dexcom sensors it will cost you £577.50. Sensors cost around £100 each and last 4 weeks the transmitter which lasts 3 months is about £200.
So first year cost would be just over £2,000.
