Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2006, Bret sought better control of his blood sugar with the use of an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to be more active and involved with his family. After meeting with a Medtronic specialist, he appreciated the ability to assemble the insulin pump and CGM in one device. It was changed to the MiniMed 530G with Enlite, an integrated insulin pump and a CGM solution. He shares his experience with diabetes to help answer questions that others may have. For more information about insulin pump therapy and CGM and the MiniMed 530G with Enlite, visit the Medtronic Diabetes website: www.medtronicdiabetes.com.

Medtronic CGM systems are available by prescription only. The information provided by the CGM systems is intended to complement, not replace, the blood glucose information obtained with a glucose meter in the home. A confirmatory digital puncture is required before making adjustments in diabetes therapy. MiniMed 530G with Enlite is not designed to be used directly to prevent or treat hypoglycemia, but to suspend the insulin supply when the user can not respond to the threshold Suspend alarm and take measures to prevent or treat hypoglycemia on their own.
