Who is it for?

If you use Multiple Daily Injections (MDI) to manage your diabetes, Guardian Connect can help you to stay on top of it all.

As we know diabetes can be difficult to manage at times, some days you don’t have any issues at all. Other days no matter how hard you try, nothing seems to work. It’s on days like these that the Guardian Connect app can make all the difference. Check your glucose level anywhere, anytime and without extra finger pricks. Just one quick look at your mobile phone and you will know whether you are within your target range, as well as whether your glucose levels are on their way up, or down. What can be more convenient and easy than simply checking your phone?

You’ll also get the possibility to set up alerts to know if you’re heading towards a hypo or hyper and react before it happens.

 

Want to know how it works?

Guardian Connect is Medtronic’s latest innovation for Continuous Glucose Monitoring. It works with 3 elements: a thin sensor, a small plastic transmitter attached to sensor and the Guardian Connect app on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

The new Guardian Connect system uses the Enlite sensor to continuously measure your glucose values. It communicates with a small transmitter that sends the glucose readings automatically every 5 minutes to your phone via Bluetooth. You can therefore check your glucose levels simply and discretely. Furthermore, you have the option to automatically transfer all data to the CareLink Diabetes Management Software, making it possible to share your glucose readings with your family, friends or caregivers in real time. If you get an alert for falling glucose levels, so will your family and friends. CareLink is even able to generate free real-time text message alerts for your care partners if you wish to.
