Ypsomed partners with Dexcom
We have recently entered a partnership with Dexcom to improve your diabetes therapy system. This partnership will make it possible for you to use the Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system as part of the mylife Diabetescare therapy system. Thanks to this integration, you will be able to review mylife YpsoPump insulin data as well as Dexcom G6 data in your mylife App on your smartphone.
The goal of mylife Diabetescare has always been to make life with diabetes easier and to give you freedom of choice when it comes to your therapy management. For many people, a CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) system is their first choice when it comes to monitoring their glucose levels. That is exactly why we entered a partnership with Dexcom, one of the world’s leading providers of CGM systems.
No more fingersticks*
More and more people with Type 1 diabetes use a CGM system instead of a conventional BGM (Blood Glucose Meter). Every five minutes, the Dexcom G6 automatically transmits your current glucose value to the mylife App. In contrast to other glucose monitoring systems, it does not require any action from you such as taking blood from your finger or scanning the transmitter (which is the case with a flash glucose monitoring system).
All relevant therapy data at a glance
Thanks to our partnership with Dexcom, as a user of our mylife YpsoPump insulin pump and the Dexcom G6, you will have the data of both the pump and the CGM system in one place: your mylife App on your smartphone.
The integration of the Dexcom G6 into our mylife Diabetescare therapy system will offer various benefits:
- Receive alerts from the mylife App when your glucose levels are too high or too low.
- Discreetly access all your relevant therapy data in one place: on your smartphone.
- Review your glucose trend and insulin data at a glance in combination with the mylife YpsoPump.
- Share all your data with your physician or caregivers via the mylife Cloud.
- Share your CGM data with followers via the Dexcom Follow app.
No need to replace your mylife YpsoPump
The system integration of the Dexcom G6 CGM system does not require a replacement of your current mylife YpsoPump. The only thing you will have to do is to conveniently download or update your mylife App from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Necessary CGM system settings and, if needed, even sensor calibration will be possible directly in your mylife App. If you are already familiar with the Dexcom G6 app, you will realise that the mylife App will cover all the functions you are used to and will work in a very similar way to the Dexcom G6 app.
This CGM integration is planned to be available late 2020 / early 2021.
*If your glucose alerts and readings from the Dexcom G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to take diabetes treatment decisions.
