Adding an Additional Basal Pattern
Device: MiniMed® 630G insulin pump (MMT-1715K)
Your basal pattern determines the amount of basal insulin you receive throughout the day and night. Because your basal insulin needs can vary, you can set up to eight basal patterns. For example, you might use one basal pattern during the week and a different basal pattern during the weekend. In addition to the 5 basal patterns, you also have 3 additional labels you can use for your basal patterns - Day Off, Sick Day and Work Day.

1. Press right to Basal and press select.
2. Press down to Insulin Settings and press select.
