Benefits of CGM


How CGM Works

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems provide a glucose reading every five minutes, 288 times per day, giving you insights that fingersticks cannot match.

Small Sensor

A discreet sensor located just underneath your skin measures glucose levels.


Glucose data is sent wirelessly to an insulin pump* and compatible smart device via Bluetooth technology.

Insulin Pump Integration

The t:slim X2 insulin pump displays the current glucose reading from the CGM system plus a trend arrow and trend line. This makes it easy to see where you are now, spot trends, and catch high and low glucose events before they happen. When combined with current insulin on board, it helps you make informed treatment decisions.

Test Yourself

Even if you test your blood sugar as often as recommended, there’s a big part of the picture you’re not seeing with fingersticks alone.

What would you do at 102?


If your glucose continues to fall at the current rate, you could be below 60 mg/dL in the next 15 minutes.


Your glucose could move up or down by 15 mg/dL over the next 15 minutes, but you are holding steady.


If your glucose continues to rise at the current rate, you could be close to 150 mg/dL in the next 15 minutes.


When paired with Dexcom G6 CGM, the t:slim X2 insulin pump can help you visualize CGM trends so you can make real-time decisions based on real-time data. Plus, the t:slim X2 pump with Control-IQ technology has been shown to help simplify diabetes management by protecting from highs and lows while increasing time in range.
