HOW DOES IT WORK?
The MiniMed™ 780G system components
Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)
Guardian™ Sensor 3 measures your glucose values 288 times a day, every 5 minutes, and sends this info automatically to your pump, so that you can see where your glucose levels are, and where they are heading.
Based on the up-to-date info received from the CGM every 5 minutes, the waterproof* pump makes automatic adjustments and corrections to your insulin delivery**. If you’re trending high, the pump gives you more insulin. If you’re trending low, it gives you less insulin. It can also alert you if you are heading to a high or low.
*At the time of manufacture and when the reservoir and tubing are properly inserted, your pump is waterproof.**Refer to System User Guide - SmartGuard™ feature. Some user interaction required.
MiniMed™ Infusion set
Whether you are new to insulin pump therapy or an experienced pumper, Medtronic offers a range of infusion sets to suit your individual needs, preference and lifestyle.

|Guardian™ Sensor 3||Used with your pump for Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM). It measures glucose levels every 5 minutes, that’s 288 times a day, and provides you and your pump with up to date information on where your glucose levels are, and where they are heading. This data can also be used by the pump to alert you about upcoming high or low and to make adjustments to your insulin delivery.|
|Accessories||There are many ways to wear your insulin pump. You can attach your pump to your waistband or belt, protect it in your pocket, or even clip it under clothing. See our collection of accessories here https://www.medtronic-diabetes.co.uk/minimed-insulin-pump-accessories|
|Accu-Chek® Guide Blood Glucose Meter||The MiniMed™ 780G system comes with a compatible meter. It wirelessly connects to your pump, allowing you to send blood glucose meter readings to your pump.|

Frequently asked questions
The MiniMed™ 780G system is approved for people with type 1 diabetes, age 7 and above. To learn more about insulin pump therapy for children please click here. If you would like a stand-alone CGM and not an insulin pump, consider looking into Guardian™ Connect CGM.
Yes. With the MiniMed™ 780G system you can easily track your glucose levels and view notifications and alerts on your smartphone. Up to 5 care partners can be invited to download the CareLink™ Connect app and view your real-time glucose values on their phones. Available to download at no cost for most iOS and Android smartphones. To see if your smartphone is compatible, see this reference chart.
The MiniMed™ 780G system automatically adjust insulin delivery to your needs for an easier way to stabilise glucose levels. It features an advance level of automation for diabetes management, known as SmartGuard™ technology. If your glucose levels are trending high, it gives you more insulin. If they are trending low, it gives you less or no insulin at all. Now it can even correct high glucose levels in cases where carb counts aren’t exact.
The MiniMed™ 780G system, automatically adjust delivery of basal insulin based on Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) values. This means that the pump gets glucose readings from the Guardian™ Sensor 3 and transmitter automatically, and then delivers of 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 – can help to stabilise your glucose levels and reduce both high and low glucose levels.
When you use an insulin pump, you have a dramatic reduction in injections – by up to 90%.* The infusion set that attaches to your body contains a small, flexible plastic cannula that is inserted to be placed under the skin and changed every 2-3 days. A CGM glucose sensor is inserted every 7 days.
Using the SmartGuard™ feature does not completely replace fingerprick BG readings but you will most likely check your BG with a fingerprick less frequently. Since sensor readings are taken from your interstitial fluid (fluid surrounding the cells in your tissue) and not your blood, you thus still need to test using a BG meter. This is done to calibrate the sensor 2-3 times a day, in order to make sure the glucose sensor maintains accuracy over time, and when the system requires a BG to continue using the SmartGuard™ feature. It is important to know that all blood glucose values entered & accepted are used for calibration.
*Assumes four injections per day for 30 days and one infusion set change every two to three days.
*At the time of manufacture and when the reservoir and tubing are properly inserted, your pump is waterproof. It is protected against the effects of being underwater to a depth up to 3.6 meters for up to 24 hours. Although it’s designed to be waterproof, drops and bumps that occur over time can make it more vulnerable to damage from water. We recommend removing your pump before swimming or bathing. The sensor and transmitter are water-resistant at 2.4 meters for up to 30 minutes. CGM readings may not be transmitted from the sensor to the pump while in water.
