Tandem® T-Slim Insulin Pump Product Video
How Can I Deal With A Leaky/Damaged t:slim X2 Cartridge?
If you observe insulin leaking from a cartridge’s base or pigtail, the cartridge will need to be disposed of and replaced. During this process, be sure to fill the new cartridge while it is off the pump. On the other hand, insulin around the cartridge’s fill port may have been left over from the filling process; to check this, wipe the insulin away with a tissue and look for any additional leakage.
Does The t:slim X2 Come With A Warranty?
Tandem offers a four-year warranty covering pump defects that arise during normal use. You can find more information on this warranty here.
Is My t:slim X2 Waterproof?

Can I Sleep While Wearing The t:slim X2?
This device can deliver glucose while you sleep. Depending on your preferences, you can set up a sleep schedule or activate the pump’s sleep mode manually.

How Can I Check If Control-IQ Has Delivered An Automatic Correction Bolus?

§Users must still bolus for meals and actively manage their diabetes. If glucose values are predicted to be above 180 mg/dL, Control-IQ technology calculates a correction bolus using the Personal Profile settings and a target of 110 mg/dL and delivers 60% of that value. An Automatic Correction Bolus will not occur within 60 minutes of a bolus that has been delivered or cancelled.
