Dexcom logo


Dexcom is a medical technology company that was founded in 1999 by a team of individuals including Scott Glenn, John Burd, Lauren Otsuki, Ellen Preston, and Bret Megargel with its headquarters in San Diego, California. The company was established with the aim of improving diabetes management through the development and manufacturing of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems.

Dexcom’s CGM systems utilize a small sensor that is inserted under the skin to measure glucose levels in the interstitial fluid. The sensor then transmits glucose data in real-time to a receiver or a smartphone app, enabling people with diabetes and their healthcare providers to track glucose levels and make informed treatment decisions.

Since its founding, Dexcom has become a leading company in the diabetes technology space, known for its accuracy, reliability, and ease of use. The company has also developed a range of software and mobile apps to help people with diabetes manage their glucose levels and share data with their healthcare providers.
