How to enter a BG

Device: MiniMed 780G insulin pump

The system may request a blood glucose (BG) meter reading to continue use. Additionally, a BG meter reading can be entered at any time, if desired. The Blood Glucose menu allows manual entry of a BG meter reading. Previously entered manual or meter BG readings do not appear on the BG screen. A BG meter reading received from a linked meter appears in a separate BG meter screen that requires confirmation.

To manually enter BG meter readings:

  1. From the Home screen, press Menu select and then select Menu drop.

    Enter a BG screen

  2. Enter a BG value. Do not enter a sensor glucose (SG) in place of a BG meter reading. A BG meter reading must always come from a BG meter. The entered glucose value is used to calibrate the sensor.

    Enter a BG screen

  3. Select Save.
    Note: A BG meter reading can be manually entered on the Bolus Wizard screen or on the Bolus screen while using the SmartGuard feature. To enter a BG meter reading on the Bolus Wizard screen, select BG. To enter a BG meter reading on the Bolus screen while using the SmartGuard feature, press Menu up, and then press Menu select.

To confirm a BG meter reading from a linked BG meter:

When the BG meter screen with the message “Confirm BG?” shows, select Yes to confirm the BG meter reading. The BG received message shows.
