When Did Dexcom G7 Receive FDA Clearance?
Dexcom announced that the Dexcom G7 received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on December 8, 2022.
Is Dexcom G7 Available in the United States?
Now that the Dexcom G7 has received FDA clearance, it is expected to be available for purchase in the United States in early 2023.
What's New About Dexcom G7?
The Dexcom G7 is approximately 60 percent smaller than the Dexcom G6. And, unlike the G6, the G7's sensor and transmitter are combined. The Dexcom G7 also has a 30 minute warm-up time, which is significantly shorter than the G6's two hour warm-up time.
The Dexcom G7 also features a redesigned mobile app, which allows users to view past and present glucose readings all in one place.
Is Dexcom G7 More Accurate?
According to the data posted from Dexcom's trials, the Dexcom G7 is more accurate than the G6. The G7’s Mean Absolute Relative Difference (MARD), which is a key metric used to evaluate CGM accuracy, is 8.2% in comparison to the G6's 9% MARD. MARD calculates the average difference between the glucose reading on the CGM with a blood-glucose measurement measured via a blood sample. A lower MARD means better accuracy.
How Long Can You Wear a Dexcom G7?
The Dexcom G7 can be worn for 10 days, plus a 12 hour grace period at the end of the 10 day wear time.
