Drug Description


Dexcom G6 Transmitter is a crucial part of a real-time continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system, intended to replace fingerstick blood glucose testing for 

diabetes treatment decisions. 

Dexcom G6 Transmitter is attached to a sensor affixed to the patient’s skin and serves as the intermediary for relaying glucose data from the sensor to a designated display device. 

This miniature radio transmitter includes data processing capabilities and is equipped with a Bluetooth radio transceiver to facilitate communication. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before affixing the Dexcom G6 Transmitter to the sensor, inspect for any signs of damage or cracking. Using a defective transmitter could pose the risk of electrical shock and potentially compromise the functionality of the G6 system. 

To place the transmitter: 

  1. Clean the transmitter first with an alcohol wipe 
  2. Insert the tab of the transmitter into the designated slot on the sensor 
  3. Snap the transmitter firmly into place 
  4. Rub around the patch three times in a circular motion 

After the transmitter is inserted into the sensor, a pairing process between the sensor and receiver is required, typically taking about 30 minutes to complete. 

Upon successful pairing, a 2-hour warm-up period is required. The receiver should be placed no more than 20 feet away from the transmitter. 

Do not discard the Dexcom G6 transmitter when replacing the sensor, as it can be used again until the G6 system indicates that the transmitter’s battery is nearing depletion. 

Side Effects 

Dexcom G6 Transmitter may cause potential side effects if inaccurate data is utilized for treatment decisions or if hardware or setup issues prevent alarms and alerts from activating. 

Call your healthcare provider if you notice the following side effects: 

  • Symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar):  
    • Hunger 
    • Shakiness 
    • Anxiety 
    • Sweating 
    • Pale skin 
    • Fast or irregular heartbeat 
    • Sleepiness 
    • Dizziness 
    • Crankiness 
  • Symptoms of hyperglycemia (high blood sugar): 
    • Thirst 
    • Headaches 
    • Difficulty concentrating 
    • Blurred vision 
    • Frequent urination 
    • Fatigue (feeling weak or tired) 
    • Weight loss 
    • Blood sugar level above 180 mg/dL 
    • Rare Side Effects 

The side effects listed here associated with using a Dexcom G6 transmitter are incomplete. If other bothersome side effects occur, promptly seek advice from your doctor. 


Dexcom G6 Transmitter should always remain within 20 feet of the receiver with no obstructions present between them to ensure the user receives glucose values, important alerts, and alarms. 

Dexcom G6 transmitter could potentially be a choking hazard. Refrain from placing the transmitter into the mouth or permitting children to handle it without adequate adult supervision. 

Sharing the Dexcom G6 Transmitter with others is strongly discouraged. This transmitter is directly connected to G6 readings and using it among different individuals may lead to inaccurate G6 readings, reports, alarms/alerts, and other associated complications. 

Dexcom G6 Transmitter is compatible only with the G6 system. Do not use it with any previous Dexcom products, and do not mix it from different generations. 

Exposure to magnetic fields and high temperatures can potentially harm the Dexcom G6 Transmitter, leading to incorrect blood glucose readings. To avoid such thing from happening:  

  • request a manual hand-wanding or full-body pat-down with a visual inspection instead of opting for the advanced imaging technology (AIT) body scanner when going through security checkups 
  • avoid putting the transmitter in the baggage x-ray machine 
  • remove the transmitter before undergoing any laboratory tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scan, or high-frequency electrical heat (diathermy) treatment
