What is the risk associated with hydroxyurea use while using Control-IQ technology?

Control-IQ technology is contraindicated for patients taking hydroxyurea, a medication used in the treatment of diseases including cancer and sickle cell anemia. DO NOT use Control-IQ technology if you are taking hydroxyurea, because your Dexcom G6 CGM readings may be falsely elevated and result in over-delivery of insulin that could result in severe hypoglycemia.
