Patient Considerations


Somewhat comfortable. Medtronic sensors need more tape than other sensors. Largest pump option. 

Active Lifestyle

Exercise mode. Manually increase blood sugar target range to 150 mg/dl during activity. System responds to blood sugar changes during activity automatically. Pump is not waterproof.

Avoiding Highs and Lows

Customizable auto-bolus. Auto-correct bolus corrects highs if carb counts are miscalculated or bolus is occasionally missed. The system aims to maintain a target blood glucose level between 100 mg/dL and 120 mg/dL depending on personalized target glucose settings. Auto-bolus is available every 5 minutes to correct blood sugar between 100 mg/dL and 120 mg/dL (12 corrections per hour). Automatic insulin delivery settings are adjustable.

Easy to Use

Easy software. Software makes many dosing decisions. Can be difficult to keep automatic insulin dosing features working. Requires fewer parts than do-it-yourself systems.

Easy Insulin Dosing

Automatically adjusts settings. Automatically adjusts insulin to reach personalized target between 100 mg/dL and 120 mg/dL. Will automatically revert to manual mode in certain situations. Basal and bolus in 0.025 increments. Extended bolus unavailable when using automated insulin delivery mode. 

Fewer Fingersticks

Factory-calibrated sensor. Fingersticks needed for backup only.


Somewhat discrete. Ability to check blood sugar on phone or watch. Pump has tubing but can be clipped to clothing or placed in a pocket to be discreet when needed.
