Setup Instructions (Dexcom)

Here are the instructions to get you set up with myLevels - just let us know if you have any questions along the way at

Step 1: Download the Dexcom G6 app: It's important to start here to check that your phone is compatible with Dexcom - you can also check compatibility here.

Step 2: Set up your sensor: Follow the Dexcom instructions to put on your sensor and get it connected to the Dexcom app. You can put it on yourself or have a friend help you. The sensor will then start calibrating.

Step 3: Link your sugar levels with Apple Health: In the Dexcom app, go to Settings & click on Use Apple Health. There will be a 3 hour delay for the sugar levels to go into Apple Health.

Step 4: Download TestFlight if you don't already have it - this is a beta testing platform that you can get the myLevels app from

Step 5: Download the myLevels app: through TestFlight (check your email for a link if it's not there). If there's any issues downloading the app it may because we don't have the correct email address for you, so please just email us at with your AppStore email address and we'll give you access. 

From here you can create an account on myLevels and the rest will be guided from there. Also, if you've not already joined we have a private Facebook Group for this cohort where you can share experiences and ask questions. 

Now your sensor should be all linked up and you should get data in myLevels in around 4 hours time - data coming into myLevels will always be 3 hours delayed, but you can see your real-time sugar levels in the Dexcom app.

In the meantime you start thinking about what food your going to test today!
