The app serves as an additional display for real-time CGM data from the Guardian Connect system through the CareLink Personal software. It is not intended to provide medical advice and should not be relied upon for such purpose. The app is not intended to replace the real-time display of the CGM data on the Guardian Connect app, control any functions of the connecting device, calculate insulin or other drug doses, or modify date or control functions of the Guardian Connect system. All therapy decisions should be made by the app user based on blood glucose (BG) measurements obtained from a BG meter. Changes to treatment should only be made in consultation with a healthcare professional (HCP). For complete details, consult the user guide at http://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/support/download-library/user-guides and important safety information.

The system is intended to complement, not replace, information obtained from standard blood glucose monitoring devices. All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained from standard blood glucose monitoring devices and not on values provided by the system.

Important Safety Information: CareLink Software

NOTE: CareLink report data is intended for use as an adjunct in the management of diabetes only and NOT intended to be relied upon by itself. Patients should consult their healthcare providers familiar with the management of diabetes prior to making changes in treatment.

Are You Ready for an Insulin Pump?

April 04, 2022

Insulin pump therapy is a safe and simple way to achieve tight glucose control. Studies have shown better outcomes when using insulin pumps. And while it does allow for more flexibility in lifestyle and the potential to even out the wide blood sugar fluctuations that are often experienced when injecting insulin, it may not be the right choice for every person. But how do you know?

Diabetes Management

As the leader in diabetes care for more than 25 years, the EHCS Diabetes Care team understands how important it is to follow the treatment plan set by a customer’s doctor.

That’s why EHCS will pair you with a Diabetes Care Advisor who will guide you through product selection, handle all of the paperwork and get your reorders started so that you’re able to stick with your healthcare plan.
