WHAT IS CGM?

Continuous Glucose Monitoring is an advanced way for people living with diabetes to check glucose readings in real-time or monitor glucose readings over a period of time. By using a continuous glucose monitor, your CGM system will automatically receive glucose readings every 5 minutes allowing you to fingerstick less often. CGM can be used with or without an insulin pump.

What is Smart CGM?

Smart CGM predicts future high and low sensor glucose events up to 60 minutes in advance and provides access to additional algorithms and insights that can inform you of clinically relevant glucose patterns.

What is Professional CGM?

Professional CGM is used by your healthcare provider and captures up to 288 glucose readings each day for up to six days and creates a personalised report that can help you better understand the cause and effect of your glucose variability.

Please visit the iPro2 Professional CGM Evaluation page for more information.

BENEFITS OF CGM.

A blood glucose meter only provides a brief “snapshot” of your glucose level at a single moment in time. A CGM system gives you a greater view of your glucose trends. CGM can provide valuable information 1 at crucial points during the day, including before and during exercise, prior to driving, before test/exam-taking, and in the middle of the night.

IS CGM FOR ME?

Medtronic offers CGM systems for people living with type 1 diabetes that want better glucose control. CGM is especially beneficial for people who:4

  • Aren’t meeting their A1C goal
  • Have frequent low glucose levels
  • Are unaware of their low blood sugars
  • Want to reduce their A1C targets without increasing hypoglycemic events (low blood glucose)
  • Have widely variable blood sugar levels
  • Are children or adolescents who are willing to use the device every day5

MiniMed® 670G INSULIN PUMP SYSTEM

 

 

MiniMed® 670G Insulin Pump and CGM system

An insulin pump combined with a CGM can enable your pump to automatically2 adjust your basal (background) insulin every five minutes based on your CGM readings#.

MiniMed® 670G system includes our newest and most advanced CGM, the Guardian Sensor 3 and the Guardian Link 3 transmitter. It is the first and only system that constantly self-adjusts2 to automatically2 keep your sugar levels in range.

The MiniMed® 670G system helps stabilise glucose levels with fewer highs and lows, so you can focus less on your diabetes and more on whatever the day brings.
