Claire uses her phone
to check her glucose levels

Six reasons
to start using Guardian Connect

AVOID HYPOS WHEN DOING SPORTS OR EXERCISING

Whether you’re a pro or just exercising in order to stay fit, regular physical activity has a very positive effect on your blood glucose values and plays a big part in the overall successful management of your diabetes. Unfortunately, increased physical activity is sometimes difficult to manage when you have diabetes. With Guardian Connect, a quick glance at your phone during the activity is all you need to know your sensor glucose levels. Guardian Connect can alert you when you drop below your target low level and if your glucose level drops suddenly. A timely alert can make all the difference and give you the notice you need to check your blood glucose in order to counteract your changing sugar levels and to help you avoiding the hypo.

Sleep Tight

Do you worry a lot about going low during the night? You’re not the only one. There is always a chance you will get a hypo during the night. Although you do everything to avoid this, it doesn’t always work out. But what if you don’t wake up when going low. With Guardian Connect you can get an alarm on your iPhone to wake you up before your glucose level is going to low. Thanks to a timely notification there is no need to be afraid anymore… sleep tight.

PEACE OF MIND WHILE DRIVING

You probably know that you should always check your glucose levels before driving. After your pre-driving check, thanks to Guardian Connect you can drive feeling reassured that you will be alerted in case your glucose levels start falling rapidly.

FOCUS ON YOUR WORK INSTEAD OF YOUR BLOOD GLUCOSE

Managing your diabetes 24/7 on top of performing a demanding job that needs 100% of your attention can be difficult. Being stressed or extremely active at work can disrupt your blood glucose levels, causing them to drop or spike without warning. Guardian Connect warns you immediately if your glucose changes rapidly. That leaves you free to focus on your work and the task at hand.

TRAVEL MADE EASIER

Do you like to travel? Well, then you know how inconvenient it can be to have a hypo at the airport, just as you’re about to go through security. Or later as you walk around and take in the sights in a beautiful, new city. Or simply when jetlag or an unfamiliar situation forces you out of your usual routine. At times like these, Guardian Connect can be a powerful ally by monitoring your glucose levels and alerting you should a problem arise.

CHECK ON YOUR CHILD’S GLUCOSE LEVELS IN REAL TIME EVEN WHEN YOU ARE NOT WITH THEM

When you are caring for a child with diabetes you spend a lot of time worrying about your child’s blood glucose values. Maybe you are concerned about their blood sugar levels dropping when you’re not with them. Guardian Connect can provide some peace of mind. One of the most exciting features of the app is its ability to transmit information in real time to your own smartphone or connected device. Parents and caregivers can even receive free SMS alerts if sensor glucose levels fall or rise beyond a targeted range. Guardian Connect is there, even if you can’t be.
