How do I use Dexcom ONE to make treatment decisions?
With Dexcom ONE, you can make treatment decisions without using your blood glucose (BG) meter (metre).
However, you should keep using your meter to make treatment decisions until you know how Dexcom ONE works for you. Do not rush! It may take days, weeks, or months for you to gain confidence in using your CGM to make treatment decisions.
Work with your healthcare professional to review what works best for you when making treatment decisions.
When to use Dexcom ONE
Use your Dexcom ONE for treatment decisions when you see both a number and trend arrow on your home screen.

When to watch and wait
Don’t take insulin doses too close together. That is called “insulin stacking.” Wait at least two hours between doses, or you might go low. It’s best to watch and wait.
