Better Diabetes Management with Medtronic Insulin Pump Therapy!
What is an Insulin Pump?
An insulin pump is a small device that acts as a healthy pancreas and provides continuous doses of insulin based on your body’s needs. Insulin pump therapy not only means 90% fewer injections*, but is also easy to use, convenient, and customizable. It allows for mealtime dosing, more stable blood sugar levels, and accurate insulin delivery!
“Using an insulin pump to manage my diabetes has given me the flexibility to live my best life!”

MiniMed™ 770G™ Insulin Pump System with SmartGuard™ Technology
The MiniMed™ 770G™ insulin pump system is the technology that adapts to you! This new, FDA-approved system automatically adjusts background insulin every 5 minutes.** By using real-time glucose readings, the system determines the amount of insulin needed based on your body’s needs.
The MiniMed™ 770G™ system, sometimes referred to as a hybrid closed loop system, automatically adjusts delivery of basal (background) insulin based on CGM sensor glucose values. This means that the pump gets glucose readings from the CGM automatically, and then delivers a variable rate of insulin 24 hours a day based on your personal needs.** This integrated system – meaning having a pump and a CGM that speak to one another – may help reduce both high and low glucose levels.**
Connect the 770G™ directly to your smartphone and stay up-to-date on your glucose trends and insulin delivery 24/7 using the MiniMed™ Mobile app.
MiniMed™ 630G™ Insulin Pump (with Optional CGM)
Succeed in managing your diabetes with the Medtronic MiniMed™ 630G™ Insulin Pump System! Featuring SmartGuard™ technology, this system takes action for you if your sensor glucose values go below a preset level. If you don’t respond to alarms, the SmartGuard™ technology can pause insulin delivery for up to two hours – giving you time to recover.
Insulin pump therapy with the MiniMed™ system makes it easier to stay in range. With an optional CGM, the MiniMed™ 630G™ pump connects to the Guardian™ Sensor 3 to continuously check your glucose levels detecting highs and lows, while working SmartGuard™ technology to help you stay in range. The only FDA-approved meter for use with the MiniMed™ 630G™ system is the Contour® Next Link 2.4 Meter, which is designed for easy and accurate CGM calibration, insulin dosing, and remote bolusing.
Medtronic’s MiniMed™ insulin delivery systems feature SmartGuard™ technology that help you stay in range!1 Your pump takes action when it senses your glucose values going below a preset level, resulting in fewer highs and lows as well as less effort to manage your diabetes. The combination of Medtronic’s pump and Guardian™ sensor system, you’re four times more likely to reach your target A1C, reduce low glucose episodes by up to 84 percent, and lower your risk of long-term complications.2, 3, 4

Important Safety Information: MiniMed™ 770G System With SmartGuard™ Technology
The MiniMed™ 770G system is intended for continuous delivery of basal insulin (at user selectable rates) and administration of insulin boluses (in user selectable amounts) for the management of type 1 diabetes mellitus in persons two years of age and older requiring insulin as well as for the continuous monitoring and trending of glucose levels in the fluid under the skin. The MiniMed™ 770G System includes SmartGuard™ technology, which can be programmed to automatically adjust delivery of basal insulin based on continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensor glucose values and can suspend delivery of insulin when the SG value falls below or is predicted to fall below predefined threshold values. The Medtronic MiniMed™ 770G System consists of the following devices: MiniMed™ 770G Insulin Pump, the Guardian™ Link (3) Transmitter, the Guardian™ Sensor (3), one-press serter, the Accu-Chek® Guide Link blood glucose meter, and the Accu-Chek® Guide Test Strips. The system requires a prescription.The Guardian™ Sensor (3) has not been evaluated and is not intended to be used directly for making therapy adjustments, but rather to provide an indication of when a fingerstick may be required. All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained using a blood glucose meter and not on values provided by the Guardian™ Sensor (3).
All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained using the Accu-Chek® Guide Link blood glucose meter and not on values provided by the Guardian™ Sensor (3). Always check the pump display to ensure the glucose result shown agrees with the glucose results shown on the Accu-Chek® Guide Link blood glucose meter. Do not calibrate your CGM device or calculate a bolus using a blood glucose meter result taken from an Alternative Site. It is not recommended to calibrate your CGM device when sensor or blood glucose values are changing rapidly, e.g., following a meal or physical exercise.
WARNING: Do not use the SmartGuard™ Auto Mode for people who require less than eight units or more than 250 units of total daily insulin per day. A total daily dose of at least eight units, but no more than 250 units, is required to operate in SmartGuard™ Auto Mode.
Important Safety Information: MiniMed™ 630G System
Indicated for the continuous delivery of insulin, at set and variable rates, for the management of diabetes mellitus. MiniMed™ 630G system is approved for ages 14 years or older with Guardian™ Sensor 3 and MiniMed™ 630G system is approved for ages 16 years or older with Enlite™ sensor. Both systems require a prescription. Insulin infusion pumps and associated components of insulin infusion systems are limited to sale by or on the order of a physician and should only be used under the direction of a healthcare professional familiar with the risks of insulin pump therapy. Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to perform a minimum of four blood glucose tests per day. Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to maintain contact with their healthcare professional. Pump therapy is not recommended for people whose vision or hearing does not allow recognition of pump signals and alarms. Insulin pumps use rapid-acting insulin. If your insulin delivery is interrupted for any reason, you must be prepared to replace the missed insulin immediately. Replace the infusion set every 48–72 hours, or more frequently per your healthcare professional’s instructions. Insertion of a glucose sensor may cause bleeding or irritation at the insertion site. Consult a physician immediately if you experience significant pain or if you suspect that the site is infected. The information provided by CGM systems is intended to supplement, not replace, blood glucose information obtained using a blood glucose meter. A confirmatory fingerstick using a CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 meter is required prior to making adjustments to diabetes therapy. Always check the pump display when using a CONTOUR®NEXT LINK 2.4 meter, to ensure the glucose result shown agrees with the glucose results shown on the meter. Do not calibrate your CGM device or calculate a bolus using a result taken from an Alternative Site (palm) or a result from a control solution test. If a control solution test is out of range, please note that the result may be transmitted to your pump when in the “Always” send mode. It is not recommended to calibrate your CGM device when sensor or blood glucose values are changing rapidly, e.g., following a meal or physical exercise. The MiniMed™ 630G system is not intended to be used directly for preventing or treating hypoglycemia but to suspend insulin delivery when the user is unable to respond to the Suspend on low alarm and take measures to prevent or treat hypoglycemia themselves. Therapy to prevent or treat hypoglycemia should be administered according to the recommendations of the user’s healthcare provider.
