A NEW WAY TO CHECK YOUR GLUCOSE LEVELS
If you use Multiple Daily Injections (MDI) to manage your diabetes, Medtronic’s new Guardian Connect can help make your life a little easier.
With Guardian Connect, you will be able to check your glucose level anywhere, anytime and without extra ﬁnger pricks. Just one quick glimpse at your mobile phone and you will know whether you are within your target range, as well as whether your glucose levels are on the up, or down. What can be more convenient and easy than simply checking your phone?
Setting-up low and high alerts is easy and can free-up your mind knowing you’ll be alerted if you’re heading towards a hypo or hyper.
