CONTINUOUS GLUCOSE MONITORING SELF FUNDING FOR YOUR MEDTRONIC INSULIN PUMP

You can subscribe to our most cost effective CGM plans and access Medtronic’s CGM system that powers your pump’s SmartGuard™ technology from under £5.00* per day.

The glucose sensor measures glucose in the fluid surrounding the cells of your tissue called interstitial fluid every 5 minutes (that’s 288 times a day!) and relays this information to your Medtronic insulin pump via the transmitter.

Your pump then uses this information to make changes to your insulin delivery. At Medtronic, we call this feature SmartGuard™Technology.

Maximise your pump’s potential with SmartGuard™

Your Medtronic CGM kit is made up of a glucose sensor that attaches to a CGM transmitter.

The glucose sensor measures glucose in the fluid surrounding the cells of your tissue called interstitial fluid every 5 minutes (that’s 288 times a day!) and relays this information to your Medtronic insulin pump via the transmitter.

Your pump then uses this information to make changes to your insulin delivery. At Medtronic, we call this feature SmartGuard™Technology.

CGM gives you the full picture

Without the full picture, it can be difficult to make informed decisions about your diabetes management. CGM allows you to see and track your glucose levels, giving you and your pump up-to-dateinformation on where your glucose levels are, and where they are heading.

This data can also be used by the pump to alert you to a high or low and make adjustments to your insulin delivery, helping to improve your time in range.

As part of your CGM Plan, Medtronic will provide technical training on the use of your CGM system (Guardian™ Link 3 or Guardian™ 4 system) with your insulin pump. It is important to note however, that even if you self-fund the CGM element of your pump therapy, you will still require confirmation from your diabetes healthcare team (hospital) that they are willing to provide ongoing clinical support for your use of CGM with your Medtronic pump before we can accept your order. Please request a call back for one of our team to talk you through the process as part of your CGM Annual Plan set up.
