Inserting your sensor and connecting the transmitter
Device: MiniMed™ 630G insulin pump (MMT-1715K)
Choose a location for inserting your sensor. Shown here are the best body areas (shaded) for sensor insertion:
Note: Clinical trials of sensor accuracy have been based on sensors inserted in the belly area. Sensor performance may differ when other insertion sites are used.
Avoid inserting the sensor:
- Into the 2-inch (5.0 cm) area around your belly button
- Where your body naturally bends a great deal
- In areas where clothing might cause irritation (for example your beltline)
- Where you have scarred or hardened tissue or stretch marks
For Enlite™ sensor, your sensor should be at least:
- 2 inches (5.0cm) away from your navel
- 1 inch away from your insulin pump infusion site
- 1 inch away from any other insulin needle injection site (syringe, pen)
