This is a pilot study enrolling adult hemodialysis patients with diabetes recruited from the University of California Irvine Medical Center (UCIMC) who will undergo simultaneous measurement of glucose levels using 1) continuous glucose monitor (CGM) measured by a Dexcom G6 device vs. 2) "gold-standard" blood glucose levels using capillary fingerstick or venous blood glucose measurements obtained on a point of care (POC) blood glucose meter. The study will assess Dexcom G6 accuracy by comparing glucose levels on the CGM device vs. blood glucose measurements in the study population.
