High Settings allow you to be alerted if your sensor glucose (SG) is:
- Rising rapidly (Rise Alert)
- Approaching your high limit (Alert before high)
- Has reached your high limit (Alert on high)
Remember, the Sensor feature must be turned on before you can set any High settings.
Before the high settings can be programmed, the high limit will need to be set. The other high settings are based on the High (Hi) Limit value. You can set up to eight high limits for different time segments throughout the day or night.
Your high limit is not the same as your glucose target. Your healthcare professional will help you determine the setting that is appropriate for you.
Alert before high
When Alert before high is turned on, you will receive an alert any time the sensor glucose is predicted to reach the high limit that you have set. This can help you to evaluate why your glucose readings are high and take the actions that your healthcare professional has recommended you take when your glucose levels are rising.
Time before High
Time before high is only available when using Alert before high. Time before high determines how many minutes before the reaching the high limit that you will receive an Alert before high. This can be set from 5 to 30 minutes.
Alert on high
When Alert on high is on, you will receive an alert any time your sensor glucose reaches or exceeds your high limit. This allows you to evaluate and treat if necessary as instructed by your healthcare professional.
The Rise Alert will notify you when your sensor glucose is rising rapidly. This alert can help you understand how your sensor glucose values are affected by things such as eating meals or when forgetting to give a bolus.
The Rise Alert can be set to alert if sensor glucose is rising as follows:
- ↑ - SG is rising at a rate of 1 mg/dL per minute or more
- ↑↑- SG is rising at a rate of 2 mg/dL per minute or more
- ↑↑↑ - SG is rising at a rate of 3 mg/dL per minute or more
- Custom – SG is rising at the rate that you set, from 1.0 to 5.0 mg/dL per minute
High Snooze is available once you have set your High Settings. High Snooze allows you to set the amount of time that you want to wait before you are reminded that an alert condition still exists. After a high alert is received and cleared, you will be alerted again only if the high alert condition still exists after the snooze time you have set.
