    Dexcom API Integration Challenges

    API Types

    Dexcom CGM offers two flavors of APIs: Share and Clarity. The Share API is intended for following someone's glucose data, while Clarity is for retrieving your own historical data. If you're aiming for real-time readings, the Share API is the way to go, but it necessitates having at least one follower set up in your Dexcom Share account.

    API Changes

    Dexcom API updates, driven by new features, bug fixes, or versioning, can cause integration issues for developers. To stay ahead, monitor Dexcom's resources, use versioning libraries, and implement error handling for a smooth user experience.

    Authentication

    There can be some particularities with authentication depending on your account type. Dexcom CGM utilizes either usernames or emails for logins, and it's crucial to use the correct method corresponding to your account. Additionally, some users have reported issues with passwords consisting solely of numbers.
