Low alert settings

The Guardian Connect app will give you sensor glucose alerts to tell you when your glucose is low. You can set glucose alerts to notify you if your sensor glucose values:

  • Are predicted to go below your low limit (Alert Before Low)
  • Have reached your low limit (Alert on Low)

You can define your low alert settings for the entire day or use different settings during the day and at night.
