Patrick was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in his 60s. Aware of the possible long-term complications, he uses the MiniMed® 640G System^ with SmartGuardTM and no longer has to inject 8-10 times a day to control his condition.

“With the MiniMed® 640G System^ with SmartGuardTM I am now getting my life back and increasing what I can do again. To me, it’s like a holistic unit."
