Minimed 530G with Enlite


enliteIt’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s the Minimed 530G with Enlite. It’s the fanciest, most advanced glucose regulated insulin pump available today. Thanks to FDA clearance, all of us who wear an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor are a step closer to the artificial pancreas.

Until the day when the software exists to detect the accurate insulin dose for glucose rising, we can thank Medtronic for catching us on the down-side. The imminent danger of a low is a lot more disastrous than the eventual damages a high can inflict.

The Minimed 530G with Enlite is the first insulin pump that allows users to set an automatic alarm that sounds if blood sugar becomes too low. The threshold suspend is set by you and your doctor. The pump sounds an alarm when you hit the preset threshold. If you do not act within 5 minutes, the insulin pump automatically suspends delivery of insulin for 2 hours.

To further the genius of the safest insulin pump available in the US, Bayer’s CONTOUR® NEXT LINK allows seamless integration as part of the MiniMed 530G Insulin Pump system, transmitting proven accurate blood glucose results wirelessly to the insulin pump.

For people who’ve been familiar with the previous generation Minimed CGM, the Enlite is getting rave reviews. It’s smaller, more comfortable, and more accurate than former versions. And the Minimed 530G works hand-in-hand with the Enlite CGM through wireless transmission of glucose readings from the bG meter mentioned above, Bayer’s CONTOUR® NEXT LINK.

If you’re like me and you wear and insulin pump and have a CGM, the pump is always on you but you may have lost the CGM receive once or twice. To err is human but to err as a human with diabetes can be unforgiving.The combination of the Minimed 530G with Enlite gives the wearer more accuracy, more consolidated gadgets, and more control of your diabetes in-hand and in real-time.

Would you buy a car without airbags? If the answer is no then you should consider the Minimed 530G with Enlite. It has the most important safety feature you must have in an insulin pump. Checkout the  Minimed 530G with Enlite today.
