Switch to a Medtronic insulin pump to manage your diabetes.
"I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 15. In reaction to the diagnosis, I wanted to understand what diabetes was. I wanted to know what it would take for me to go back to the life I had before. It is important to have a proactive mindset, because the amount of effort you put in to learn about the condition directly affects how good your control and lifestyle will be. There are so many things you can learn about at diagnosis, including the MiniMed insulin pump that can help you to live well and take control."
- Insulin pump therapy provides you with a flexible way to manage your diabetes while providing better control than injections.1
- An insulin pump is a small device that is not implanted and can be programmed to deliver precise doses of insulin to closely match your body's needs.
- An insulin pump can be right for people with type 1, type 2, gestational diabetes, or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults.
- Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) is a way to measure glucose levels in real time throughout the day and night.
- A blood glucose meter only provides a brief "snapshot" of your glucose level at a single moment in time. A CGM device gives you a greater view of your glucose trends, letting you know the direction your glucose levels are going, and notifies you of oncoming highs and lows.
