i have the G4 and love it. It adds another permanent piece of equipment to your body but is more than worth the sacrifice. Makes diabetes management much easier. What negatives have you heard that worry you?

We love the G5. Easy, convenient and gives peace of mind for me to be able to keep an eye on my son’s blood sugar.

Heard that its not too accurate and keeps on breaking. But love the fact that it shows my glucose on the apple watch so ordered 1 yesterday

G5 is great. we recently had to get a new pump, so got the latest medtronic 640G and enlite sesnors and are so diassapointed with how inaccurate they are compated to the g5

I have g5 and very much won't be able to go without it. when my receiver went out I contacted Dexcom and asked if my share what phones are compatible. I love the Dexcom G5 share as I have so much more control with my blood sugar levels. the only thing is can't take Tylenol or anything like that.

its saved us more than a few times. besides having to attach it to your body it's amazing. the piece of mind is worth the price. well from a mother of a t1 perspective. my son could care less lol
