Insulin Pump Therapy: Medtronic MiniMed™ 770G™ Insulin Pump System

April 04, 2022

The Medtronic MiniMed™ 770G™ insulin pump system is the technology that adapts to you! Approved for ages 2 and up, this new, FDA-approved system automatically adjusts background insulin every 5 minutes.** By using real-time glucose readings from the integrated Guardian Connect continuous monitoring system, the system determines the amount of insulin needed based on your body’s needs.

See Your Sugar Levels And Insulin Delivery Right On Your Smartphone!

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.**

You can even stay up-to-date on your glucose trends and insulin delivery 24/7 using the MiniMed™ Mobile app for iOs and Android. This system adapts to your unique needs, so you can focus on living your life and worrying less about managing your diabetes!

Multiple Features Make Managing Your Diabetes Easier:

  • Data-sharing capability makes virtual and in-person doctor’s appointments easier

  • Smartguard™ Auto Mode helps prevent glucose highs and lows

  • MiniMed™ Mobile App allows you to discreetly check your numbers

  • Carelink™ Connect App brings more peace of mind for care partners

  • Exercise setting may reduce lows during activities

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 (SG) 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 MiniMed™ 770G system until appropriate training has been received from a healthcare professional. Training is essential to ensure the safe use of the MiniMed™ 770G system.

 Pump therapy is not recommended for people whose vision or hearing does not allow recognition of pump signals and alarms. Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to maintain contact with their healthcare professional. The safety of the MiniMed™ 770G system has not been studied in pregnant women. For complete details of the system, including product and important safety information such as indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions associated with system and its components, please consult http://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/important-safety- information#minimed-770g and the appropriate user guide at http://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/download-library.

What to Expect with an Insulin Pump

January 04, 2021

An insulin pump is a great resource for improving life with diabetes, but it is still important to learn how your pump works and how to manage it while controlling your blood glucose.

When transitioning to an insulin pump, it is important to familiarize yourself with any changes by paying close attention to your levels and adjustments.

Adjusting to an Insulin Pump

You don’t need to be an overnight expert on your insulin pump; your healthcare team and Diabetes Care Advisor are here to assist with any questions. Use the information below as you begin to use an insulin pump. Still have questions?

Call us at 1-800-951-1725 or email us at dca@myehcs.com

What You’ll Need to Learn
  • Pump parts and features
  • Infusion sets
  • Caring for the insertion site
  • Adjusting insulin (basal/bolus)
  • Counting carbohydrates
  • Troubleshooting
  • Using syringes to prevent DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis)
Taking Insulin at Specific Times

Taking insulin at specific times throughout the day will not only help your body adjust, but also help it remember boluses, especially around meal times.

Traveling with an Insulin Pump

When traveling, bring extra pump supplies, syringes, and insulin in case you are unable to use your pump. It is always good to have a back up plan.

Watching the Foods You Eat

While using an insulin pump, when you eat, what you eat, and how much you eat are up to you. it may be a good idea to speak with a dietitian or healthcare provider about your diet when beginning to use an insulin pump.

Recording Blood Glucose Checks

Make a habit of recording your blood glucose checks, carbohydrate amounts, and correction doses. When talking with your healthcare provider, these records will help to adjust and address any areas of concern, if needed.

Turning off Your Pump

There may be times where you will need to turn off or remove your insulin pump. For an easy reminder to turn your pump back on, listen to the pump alarms or set a timer.
