The t:slim X2 insulin pump integrates directly with Dexcom G6 Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM). The use of CGM is proven to give better management, so the option is there if you need it.
CGM provides real-time glucose readings every five minutes throughout the day and night, notifying you of highs and lows so you can respond. Glucose data is sent wirelessly to your t:slim X2 and compatible smart device via Bluetooth® technology. A discrete sensor located just under your skin measures your glucose levels for up to seven days.
When it comes to managing your blood glucose levels, it's just as important to know where you're going as it is to know where you are. CGM provides up to 288 readings per day, giving you insights that finger tests can't match.
The t:slim X2 insulin pump can also be used with or without CGM. When CGM is turned off, the t:slim X2 pump removes the CGM chart and puts the Bolus and Options buttons in the center of the screen for easy access.
When used with CGM, you can choose one of two predictive technologies, which help deliver insulin, making it simpler to manage diabetes.
Important Safety Information
- If your glucose alerts and CGM readings do not match your symptoms and expectations, you should perform a fingerstick to confirm your blood glucose level.
- Dexcom CGM sold separately. Transmitter can only be paired with one medical device (either a Dexcom receiver or t:slim X2 insulin pump) and one consumer device (phone or tablet) at the same time.
