And if they’re on a Dexcom G5 or a G6,, it will automatically display in the CGM reading on the log book also. So, then when the report is generated for the provider, the provider can not only see insulin dosing information but they can overlay that with CGM or BGM info as well, so they’re getting that complete picture.
