CONTINUOUS GLUCOSE MONITORING SELF FUNDING FOR YOUR MEDTRONIC INSULIN PUMP

For as little as £5.00 per day* you can subscribe to our most cost-effective CGM Annual Plan and access Medtronic’s CGM system that powers your pump’s SmartGuard™ technology.

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 diabetesmanagement. 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.
