Dexcom G5 Mobile is the latest device designed to help patients keep track of their blood glucose levels. In addition to providing round-the-clock glucose monitoring, by reporting glucose values every 5 minutes, the system reports trending glucose information in real-time by showing the speed and direction in which one’s glucose is moving. It also features customizable alarms and alerts for high and low glucose readings. Thanks to Dexcom G5 Mobile, patients can now check their glucose levels, trends and data on their compatible Apple or Android smart devices, and share the information with up to five of their loved ones. Moreover, followers can receive high/low glucose alerts and alarms at the same time with the patient.

Thanks to its unprecedented accuracy, Dexcom G5 Mobile is the only device approved by the FDA to be used for treatment decisions, which allows patients to determine their insulin dosing based on the device’s readings.

“Having the Dexcom G5 Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system commercially available in Oman, and for the first time in the region, underlines the commitment of private and public institutions to provide the latest cutting-edge equipment and medicines to help patients better manage their diabetes. This revolutionary device also promotes patients’ self- reliance/autonomy, and encourages them to practice sports and to adopt a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet,” said Dr. Noor Al Busaidi President, Oman Diabetes Association; National Diabetes & Endocrine Center Director.
