Basal patterns

Device: MiniMed™ 630G insulin pump (MMT-1715K)

A Basal Pattern refers to one or more basal rates delivering insulin over a 24-hour period. While some people use one basal rate all day, others require different rates at different times of the day. To complete a Basal Pattern, basal rates must be set from 12:00A to 12:00A.

Your healthcare professional will determine what rate or rates are right for you.
