Important safety information:

Medtronic Diabetes insulin infusion pumps, continuous glucose monitoring systems and associated components 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 associated with the use of these systems. Successful operation of the insulin infusion pumps and/or continuous glucose monitoring systems requires adequate vision and hearing to recognize alerts and alarms.

Medtronic diabetes insulin infusion pumps:

Insulin pump therapy is not recommended for individuals who are unable or unwilling to perform a minimum of four blood glucose tests per day. 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.

Medtronic diabetes continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems:

The information provided by CGM systems is intended to supplement, not replace, blood glucose information obtained using a home glucose meter. A confirmatory finger stick is required prior to treatment. 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. Please visit for additional details.

Guardian sensors:

The Guardian 4 sensor is intended for use with the MiniMed 780G system. The Guardian Sensor (3) is intended for use with the MiniMed 770G system, MiniMed 670G system, MiniMed 630G system and the Guardian Connect system to continuously monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes. The sensor is intended for single use and requires a prescription. The Guardian Sensors are indicated for seven days of continuous use.

For further details, including safety and risk information, please consult the user guide and applicable system manual.
