Pump Tip: Square Wave Bolus
MiniMed® Paradigm Models, MiniMed® Revel, MiniMed® 530G system, MiniMed® 630G system
Little kids (and big kids alike) might enjoy the treats and other sweet-goodies that go along with Halloween. It’s hard to resist a cupcake decorated like a vampire, we know. As long as you plan and adjust your bolus amounts accordingly, you can still manage to dip into a treat or two this Halloween.
Your pump’s Square Wave Bolus feature can be useful when you plan to extend your meals or snacking over an extended period of time — like when you binge watch every single monster movie on Netflix.

Before hitting play on that scary movie, it’s important to consult with your healthcare professional before using this feature.

Heard there was a new pump being tested in Canada–insulin for high blood sugar and glucose for low blood sugar. If true, I will be in my 80’s before the FDA approves it in the states (I’m 67). I am interested in clinical trials.
