At Medtronic Diabetes our vision is to transform diabetes care together for greater freedom and better health. Each word in that statement is important – including the one “together”. We’re a group of passionate people working hard to make a big positive impact on the lives of those with diabetes. But we can’t do it alone. Collaboration is key. With healthcare providers, academic institutions, non-profits and other companies. And, most importantly, with you – the people who live with diabetes every day.
We started this blog back in 2011 and it has been a great way for us to connect with you and others in the Diabetes Online Community (DOC). We share helpful diabetes tips, stories and perspective from the community and information about our efforts to change the way people manage diabetes. We count on you to give us your thoughts and feedback and ask lots of questions. We’ve learned so much over the years and yet you still teach us something new every day. Thank you for your continuous questions and keep the feedback coming!

Our wonderful 24-hour customer service team is happy to help with individual customer service issues, as we cannot address specific individual concerns on the blog. The Customer Service team can be reached at 1.800.646.4633.
Of course, The LOOP blog (or any blog) should never be used as medical advice. Always work closely with your healthcare team to manage your diabetes.
