Along with delivering insulin, the MiniMed 630G System works with Medtronic’s Guardian Sensor 3 and Guardian Link 3 Transmitter to offer optional CGM capabilities. It can also calculate and recommend bolus doses.
At the heart of this system is the MiniMed 630G Insulin Pump itself. This device is easy to use, waterproof§, and even has an airplane mode for frequent flyers. While wearing this pump, you’ll be able to live life without worrying about insulin doses – and its tubing only needs to be changed once every two to three days.
*CGM uses a special sensor to measure sugar levels just below the skin known as interstitial fluid. These sensor glucose (SG) values are different from blood glucose (BG) measurements using a BG meter. Sensor glucose values should not be used to make treatment decisions. Patients should always do a BG fingerstick before they make treatment decisions.

§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 of up to 12 feet (3.6 meters) for up to 24 hours.
¶Refers to suspend on low. WARNING: Do not use the Suspend on low feature to prevent or treat low glucose. Always confirm your sensor glucose reading using your BG meter, and follow the instructions of your healthcare professional to treat low glucose. Using Suspend on low alone to prevent or treat low glucose may result in prolonged hypoglycemia.
