STARTING A FAMILY
If you're planning a family, it's vital to keep your blood glucose levels under control. Rita who has twin boys took action to prevent hypoglycaemia during pregnancy. Watch our webinar on pregnancy and insulin pump therapy.
“My insulin pump has helped me maintain an average glucose level of 6 and I find I've always been happy when I get the results from the endocrinologist. If you want better control and …not as many hypos…. get on the pump!"
Worried about hypos especially when you're asleep? The good news is that our MiniMed® 670G is the first in the world with a Predictive Low & High Glucose Suspend safety feature called SmartGuardTM. When combined with Continuous Glucose Monitoring, it automatically shuts off insulin when your glucose levels fall below or above a pre-set limit, then resumes insulin once levels recover. This helps mimic more3 of the functions of a healthy pancreas to provide advanced protection against hypoglycaemia1, giving you the confidence to sleep soundly at night.
Insulin pump therapy can help you reduce the risk of many long-term complications2. Roslyn has discovered the benefits of better control - after an average HbA1c reading of 8.8, she's now a consistent 6.4.
"Because I’m using a pump I feel I'm a lot more in control of any later complications."
TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE
Whether you're as adventurous as Sally or just enjoy broadening your horizons, an insulin pump combined with CGM can give you more freedom. Along with your travel agent, have a chat to your doctor or endo for personalised advice. You can even apply for a spare pump to take with you. For the full story about Sally, watch our webinar.
"There's no way I could have climbed to Everest Base Camp and Kilimanjaro without my pump and CGM!"
