FDA Approves Dexcom Mobile App and New Bluetooth Receiver.

Cue the confetti cannons!

From the press release:
"The Dexcom Share receiver uses a secure wireless connection via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) between a patient’s receiver and an app on the patient’s smartphone to transmit glucose information to apps on the mobile devices of up to five designated recipients, or “followers,” without the need for a dedicated docking cradle. These followers can remotely monitor a patient’s glucose information and receive alert notifications from almost anywhere, initially via their Apple® iPhone® or iPod® touch and in the future on Android devices, giving them peace of mind and reassurance when they are apart. The “Share” and “Follower” apps will be available on the Apple App Store at no charge."

From what I've surmised, but please contact Dexcom directly for better info:

  • So there is now a new receiver called Share (which is confusing since the docking station is also called Share) that does the Bluetooth transmitting to Dexcom's apps.
  • If you already have a Share docking station, it sounds like you get a free upgrade.
  • If you have the G4 Platinum system but no Share docking station, there will be a "small cash upgrade" and they start shipping in March.
  • If you have ordered a new G4 Platinum regular receiver since January 1 2015, you get upgraded to the new Share receiver for free.
  • The "Follow) app lets the follower set their own alert parameters, ringtones, etc. independent of what the patient has for settings on the physical receiver.
  • The Share receiver is available to patients age 2 and up - no waiting for separate pediatric approval. YAY.
Dexcom held a conference call today to explain more about FDA's approval and the new system, and when that transcript is published I'll link to it.

  2. A few states offer senior residents chances to repair their homes with stipend trusts reserved for the elderly. These stipends regularly convey confinements, for example, the candidate must be a particular age or keep up a certain pay level.

  4. It provides a safe wireless connection through Bluetooth low energy and the app working best functions to transmit glucose information. I really like this feature. As a developer of USA web applications development, I know how this mobile application is useful for different functions.

  6. G5 Mobile CGM users will be able select up to five other people to remotely monitor their glucose information and receive notifications based on that data. This feature is also enabled for Dexcom’s other smartphone-connected device, the G4, though that CGM can only send data to a smartphone.
