I am also retired and on government Medicare insurance. The Minmed G was never offered to me but only the Revel recertified pump when my Minimed insulin pump had failed in June I am hoping Medtronic can work with our government healthcare medicare system so this MiniMed G will also be available to us retired patients as well.
I will be 70 years old in November and I am still doing very well keeping my glucose levels in great control. My health is very good and put on the insulin pump in is only reason I am still going strong. Anyway, I am happy to hear this great news on the Minmed G. Keep up the great work! Please let me know if you would like someone from my team to connect with you to discuss your options to see if you would be eligible for a MiniMed G system.
Those who purchase the MiniMed G system will be one of the first in line to get the opportunity to upgrade to the new MiniMed G system for a low cost through our Priority Access pathway program. I wore the Medtronic CGMS for 3 years and consistently had significant fluctuations that could not be accounted for through many, many, many long conversations with customer service.
I finally moved to another CGM, and the accuracy and consistency was noticeably improved. It sounds like you may have been using our Sof-sensor, which is approved with the MiniMed Paradigm insulin pump. Our MiniMed G system includes the Enlite sensor, our most advanced glucose sensor technology commercially available that has many improvements in comfort and accuracy. When comparing user guide data, our Enlite sensor is on par with other sensors in the market. The Guardian Sensor 3 for the MiniMed G system is our newest and most advanced glucose sensor with enhanced accuracy and performance, and a longer 7-day life.
Would you be willing to speak to someone about the MiniMed G system and determine if it is right for you? Also curious about the bolusing for carbs. Will I have to enter my carbs and bolus for them like an insulin pump and if so, how is this different than an insulin pump? Will it come with a test meter? Will it ever be rid of tubing?
I just sort of feel like if you have to still enter for carbs that it is not a pancreas and still a pump. Does it correct as sugars rise? Also does it give glucose if sugar gets low? Please prove me wrong.
Please answer my questions if you have time. Thanks in advance, Amanda. We are working with payers to establish coverage for the new system, so stay tuned as we get closer to commercial launch in the spring. The MiniMed G system is a hybrid closed loop system, which means that when used in Auto Mode, the pump automatically adjusts the delivery of your basal insulin based on readings from our new, most advanced CGM sensor, the Guardian Sensor 3. Auto Mode automatically adjusts basal insulin delivery based on your sensor glucose values and recent insulin delivery needs.
A new Low Management feature that will temporarily stop insulin delivery if the sensor glucose value is approaching a preset low limit. Suspend on low Threshold Suspend: Stops insulin delivery once the sensor glucose values reach a preset limit. It also automatically resumes insulin delivery when sensor glucose levels recover.
Okay, that makes more sense! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all my questions so thoroughly! This is what makes Medtronic great to me! You guys go above and beyond to help your patients! So, it is not a fully functional pancreas, but close! I like that auto mode stuff. That will help doctors majorly in deciding how much to program your pump for. When is it going to be released? That would be so cool if so. Dear, May I ask why the minimed G device is not recommended below age of 14 years?
Also, what about type 2 , why only for type 1? Adnan, we will conduct ongoing studies to expand the indication to additional patient populations. In the meantime, the Revel insulin pump is available for peds, and the MiniMed G system and MiniMed G system are available to people with type 2 diabetes. I have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for 36 years. No warning was given to my parents that they would need to give injections to their baby girl.
No amount of sugar I ate caused my diabetes. In fact, no amount of exercise or healthy eating will ever change what is the truth. Not even a little bit. I will never be diabetes free unless there is a cure. Lifestyle changes are essential for Type 2 Diabetics. It can go away. There are actual books out there written by profound nutritionists about reversing Type 2 Diabetes. So to answer your question, this AP that will become available soon to me and the millions of others living with Type 1 Diabetes is the closest thing we Type 1s have to a cure.
Your pancreas may be defective but my pancreas ceased to exist 36 years ago. Because you have that option. But this thing that is coming out being called an AP allows me to continue hoping for that cure, and that all those living with Type 1 Diabetes will be able to forever end their Diabetes. And we can all go from Type 1 to Type None. Something that Type 2 Diabetics can work on doing for themselves now, if they so choose.
Does the new G have the MiniMed Connect feature built in so readings will transmit to my phone? We will have more information available on the Guardian Sensor 3 transmission range closer to commercial release in the spring.
My insurance company only pays for insulin pumps once every 2 years, so I am not able to get the G insulin pump system now. Also, my husband is able to view my sugar and insulin amounts on board with his phone using the Minimed Connect and my current G. I was told that this option is not available with the G. For customers interested in the connectivity benefits of MiniMed Connect and its remote monitoring features, we recommend the MiniMed G system.
Have you spoken to one of our customer service team members about upgrading to a MiniMed G system? We do have a variety of different programs that help many customers upgrade to the MiniMed G system. Of course, this does vary by insurance coverage, time since you bought your last pump, etc. If you are not able to upgrade to the MiniMed G system and go through the Access Pathway program, we will have upgrade options available for customers who are in-warranty to access our MiniMed G system once available.
Stay tuned for this information in the coming weeks. I just purchased and received the G at the beginning of summer, only a couple of weeks before the G came out and was wondering if there is anyway to exchange it for the G?
Elizabeth — You may be able to upgrade to the MiniMed G system, and would then be eligible for the Priority Access program and be among the first to receive the MiniMed G. You can learn more here: I will have someone from my team connect with you to discuss your upgrade options.
I feel so much better and so much more comfortable with my tubeless pump. Please work on becoming a tubeless pump. Our ultimate vision is to develop a fully closed loop system that would require minimal to no interaction from the person with diabetes.
Does the G take over for basal rates, and adjusts them based on blood sugar levels? Or do you still have to input your basal rates? Am I right that the and use the same sensors but not the ?
Annette, when the MiniMed G system is used in Auto Mode, the pump automatically adjusts the delivery of your basal insulin based on readings from our Guardian Sensor 3. Suspend on low which is also in MiniMed G and Suspend before low which is new. The MiniMed G system uses the Guardian Sensor 3, our newest and most advanced glucose sensor with enhanced accuracy and performance, and a longer 7-day life. Sounds pretty interesting as my doctor has me looking into using a pump. Is this system going to be able to withstand the rigors of endurance events and the training that goes along with it, including what I assume will be the daily disconnecting for swimming.
The MiniMed G insulin pump is waterproof in up to 12 feet of water for 24 hours at a time. The Guardian Link transmitter is waterproof in up to 8 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Is the sensor still the same basic physical design as the original Paradigm system?
I went to another CGM supplier due to the sensors constantly pulling out, so I put my engineering cap on and looked at the issues: Two pieces of adhesive stresses the attachment point and the shearing forces pull on the adhesive.
In English, you have this flippy thing attached at the fulcrum, and that catches on clothes 2. Nothing to catch on my undershirt. We will have more information around the wear of the sensor and transmitter closer to the product release. So its basically a CGM and an insulin pump.
The only advancement is that they communicate? This took decades to figure out? Just another stop along the sloooooow work toward a cure. I still do finger pricks, I still have to input carbs. No different than Apple. What makes the MiniMed G system the first approved hybrid closed loop system worldwide is the ability of SmartGuard HCL technology to automatically adjust the delivery of basal insulin based on your CGM sensor glucose values.
Progress toward anything takes time, especially when dealing with something as unpredictable as human biology. You know at all times what your blood sugar is and you can trust that number more and more with every new sensor.
Not only that, you know which direction your blood sugar is headed, which is incredibly useful. Your finger pricks are less often and your blood sugars stay under better control. Try to look on the bright side of life a little and appreciate more the companies that work every day to make your life a little easier and longer.
You can be one of the first to receive the MiniMed G system by taking part in the Priority Access program if you purchase the MiniMed G system today. You can learn more about the program here: I heard a rumor that the system will not allow a target bg level lower than We try to keep our son under so a low range of seems too high.
Second, does the system automatically increase insulin delivery when it sensing rising levels? When auto mode is active, the device can automatically adjust basal insulin by increasing, decreasing, or turning off basal insulin delivery based on sensor glucose levels. If I purchase this system and find my blood sugar control is not as good as my present control with a Paradigm pump, will I be able to use the G in a non-Auto Mode which allows user determined settings of multiple basals and boluses as does my present Paradigm pump?
All of this is so new to be because 2 years ago I had to have my pancreas, as well as my islet cells which could have been transplanted into my liver; their home to produce insulin but Medicare and all their infinite wisdom found it less expensive to trash my islet cells and hope that I live years with diabetes and its complications removed due to a tumor as well as the pancreas becaming so sick from chronic pancreatitis and it just quit working.
I love this system, however, I am always looking for something that will make my life easier. I feel as though I babysit this pump, the CGMs and the entire system. I still set my alarm at night to get up and check my blood sugars. I have had too many close calls of hypoglycemia during the night even wearing the pump. Then for me to wear the monitors I have to pay out of pocket, that is a good amount of change every month for a person on a fixed income.
I paid out of pocket to upgrade through the pathway program in addition pay out of pocket for my CGM. Will I be able to upgrade through the pathways program to this new coming out in spring Or will Medicare have some loophole on this? We will offer a Priority Access program for Medtronic customers who are in-warranty access to the MiniMed G system.
Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more information. I read a comment from Elizabeth above asking basically the same question about trade in or something with my g that i upgraded to in June this summer, and i would like to upgrade to g so I could be eligible for the new g. Could you have someone contact me regarding this please. Hi Susan — Please call to speak with one of our team members that can help you with your upgrade. You can also learn more about the upgrade here: We have recently purchased a new pump from a competitor but are very interested in this new technology.
Will the insurance companies be flexible in allowing patients to change companies given that the system is new and was not available at the time the current pump was purchased? At that time, someone from my team can help you out to discuss your options.
Hi, I am very interested on the MiniMed! I am currently using competitor products, so it will be a big change for me. Would you be offering informative setions or something of that nature that I can attend? Yes, when starting on our product, you will have an experienced training and education team that will help you get the most from your new therapy.
Additionally, you will be partnered with your own StartRight representative, which will offer you personal coaching that will help you get started on your new system. My friend sandeep is suffering from type II diabetes. Do this machine help him too in controlling blood sugar. The MiniMed G system is currently approved for people with type 1 diabetes, ages 14 and older. However, our MiniMed G system is approved for people with type 2 diabetes.
There are many clinical and lifestyle benefits of insulin pump therapy for people with type 2 diabetes who require insulin. We will have more information on the pricing of the system closer to the spring once commercially available. I have been waiting for years for this. I am retired and have Medicare and Medicaid. Will this be covered??? Do you have any information on the current estimated cash cost of the new Guardian Sensor 3 for the G pump compared to the current Enlite Sensor price.
I am on Medicare and pay cash for my Enlite sensors with my current G Pump. If you have no information, when do you think it will be available. We will have more information on the pricing of the system closer to the commercial launch in the spring. Hi Holly — yes, the MiniMed G system, which is a hybrid closed loop system, is waterproof.
Is this device suitable for patients whose Pancreas have been removed with an operation because of Pancreas Cancer? Great to have forum like this and the new system sounds great. I have commented a couple of times but am concerned about getting Medicare to supply the new system. I am due for a new pump this year.
I am 76 years old a nd in great shape with no complications hiked about a mile with canoe into rugged area of Adirondacks yesterday i have been T1D since 65 years i am concerned about how much medicare will cover and wondering if there is any info available on medicare.
Perley — We are partnering with payers to drive broad access for this new technology, and will have more information closer to the spring when the system is commercially available.
Does the CGM communicate with an iPhone for reporting blood sugars to loved ones? I noticed the lost this functionality for some reason. Amber, we will conduct ongoing studies to expand the indication to additional patient populations.
Will this have a connecting meter? Lets see how the G will improve the values, especially during special situations e.
Loking forward to see the G in Germany. Will the G be compatible with the Minimed Connect system? Is there a timeframe in which there will be remote access to the G cgm monitoring? Medicare has been less than thrilled with covering sensors of any type — do we have any indication as to which way they may go now that the sensors are an integral part of the system?
We are working with payers for broad access to this new technology, and will have more information closer to the spring when the system is available. What is the size of the G insulin pump? I know the G pump is larger than the G pump and only the larger reservoirs can be used with the G. The smaller pump is also less awkward and burdensome.
At the very least people should have a choice between a larger one and a smaller one as you have done with your other systems. The dimensions are 2. Suspend on low takes action to reduce lows by automatically stopping insulin delivery for up to 2 hours when the sensor glucose value reaches a preset low limit. Suspend before low stops insulin delivery if the sensor glucose value is approaching a preset low limit and resumes delivery when levels recover.
Suspend before low feature takes further action to address lows. Instead of stopping insulin delivery when the preset low limit is reached, Suspend before low stops insulin delivery before the low limit is reached.
What kind of wait time will I be looking at for the g if I do not upgrade to the g? I understand your concern. Customers who do decide to upgrade to the MiniMed G system will be able to upgrade to the MiniMed G system for a low cost. We will also have options for customers who are in-warranty to upgrade to the MiniMed G system, but I cannot yet comment on the timing. We should have more information in the coming weeks. Or is that only to the flat portion, so 3.
Do you think there is enough for everybody we still have to wait more to get one? Additionally, you will be eligible to upgrade to the MiniMed G system at a low cost. Please visit this site for more information: I have a question about this new machine.
Auto Mode automatically adjusts your basal insulin delivery based on your sensor glucose values and recent insulin delivery needs.
Does this answer your question? I currrntly have a g pump and CGM. How or what would I need to do to upgrade to the new one in Srping ?
Would I need to upgrade now to the new g and then to the newest system in ? Great products by the way. The fastest and easiest way to upgrade to the MiniMed G system is through our Priority Access program. Through this program, you would be upgraded to the MiniMed G system now, and once the MiniMed G system is available in the spring, you would be one of the first to get on the system at a lower cost. Please visit this site to learn more: One of the features I really like about the G is that I can test my BG and program a bolus right from the meter without taking out the pump.
Will remote bolusing from the meter be possible with the G? Hi Sara, I have been a Minimed pump user for 20 years. I currently have a paradigm I work in a hospital, on a telemetry unit. I frequently get lost signal alarms when using the cgm at work, even when pump and sensor are less than 6 inches from each other. Has the new sensor solved this problem for those of use that work hospitals and telemetry units?
If so, I am excited to try the g pump. Hi Sarah — Thank you for being a loyal Medtronic customer for all of these years. It is an entirely new CGM sensor and is the first and only sensor approved by the FDA to power a hybrid closed loop system. It incorporates diagnostic technology that continuously monitors sensor health. Please let me know if you would like someone to contact you to try and help with your connectivity issues. I currently use the Paradigm Can you tell me if the new pumps g and g transmit blood sugar readings thru Bluetooth to smart phones without any external device?
Will the g be able to transmit directly to the iPhone to send blood sugar readings like some of your competitors pumps already do? I am Type 1 for almost 40 years. I finally went on the pump Paradigm almost 3 months ago and am now so very sorry I waited so long. My readings are so much better now. Do I put in my request now? What can you recommend.
If you want to wait, we will have more information on insurance coverage and upgrade options for the MiniMed G system closer to when the system is commercially available.
What has changed that gives Medtronic so much confidence and the FDA for that matter that this will work without risking patients lives? I think that this product is exciting but I disagree with the role out process.
We have been long term customers and loyal to medtonic and their products. Is there a convenient upgrade deal for other medtronic pump users?
Dan, we will have upgrade options for Medtronic customers who are in-warranty access to the MiniMed G system. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks. Will the following be compatible with the ? Assuming the will NOT fit in the current 7 series clips, will Minimed take back any clips for the 7 series for the new pump and credit the accounts? Yes, the Quick-set and MiniMed 3. Many thanks to Medtronic for finally bringing the closed-loop pump to fruition.
Sara, you are a great knowledge resource. Thank you for your work to inform patients. I highly recommend that recent T1s and parents fo T1s take a deep breath and embrace this new technology. As a T1 , or person with diabetes I am not interested in the term of the day , I have been waiting nearly 40 years for this type of technology. The creation of the glucose monitor changed my life. The pump made it even better.
Thank you for the kind words, Kim! Hello, this sounds like a wonderful system. It is on the iPhone, but not interested in iPhone.
We understand the importance of being able to remotely monitor your diabetes health information. If you are interested in the connectivity benefits of MiniMed Connect and its remote monitoring features, we recommend the MiniMed G system. We are working on an Android version that will be available soon. I have been diabetic since I was 15 years old and currently I have 26 years with the condition.
I was the second patient to use insulin pump in PR 20 years ago and believe me this is a great therapy. I currently use the insulin pump G and it helps me to have an A1C of 6. I recommend this theraphy which is one that helps each person to achieve health and life.
Medtronic is the best thing that has happened in my life with the help of my doctor. Darwin, thank you for sharing your experiences with us. What insulin cartridges would need to be used and do you know if these will be given on prescription. We will have pricing available closer to the launch date in the spring. You can also contact dhelp medtronic. When used in Auto Mode, the MiniMed G system automatically adjusts the delivery of your basal insulin based on readings from the Guardian Sensor 3.
The system uses a 3 mL volume reservoir and does require a prescription to purchase. Hello, I have a question about the need to give yourself boluses for carbs with this new system.
As someone who has been a type 1 diabetic for 20 years, I feel like this is the main thing keeping this system from being revolutionary or is it? Sam, the Auto Mode feature of the MiniMed G system requires you to enter the amount of carbs for your meals.
Auto Mode will make small adjustments to insulin delivery based on sensor values every five minutes, but the algorithm is not intended to correct for missed meal boluses. My name is Aubrey. I was wondering why the 14 years and up age restriction? My son is 8 years old. He has had T1D since the age of 4. His doctor told me of the AP system finally being approved by FDA the same day that everyone announced it. She thinks it is crucial to have my son on a system like this yet we are worried about insurance and what not due to his age.
His blood sugar levels are impossible to control at times. If we treat a high, he goes low. If we treat a low, he goes high. When he drops he drops fast and usually never feels the change. His blood sugars are affected by Everything. I try to be as vigilant with his care as possible but being a single mother I can only stay up for so long at a time.
Some days it seems like a never ending war has been raged on my family. The patient population in the MiniMed G system clinical trial were people with type 1 diabetes ages 14 and older, which is why the system is only approved for that population. We are working on a clinical trial with children with type 1 diabetes under the age of 14, but I do not have timing on that process. My child transitioned to a G one month ago, combined with an Enlite sensor.
By the way, does the Enlite sensor use 2. Is this safe long term? If you do have any questions about the product or therapy, remember our hour helpline is always available to help.
The Guardian Link transmitter not the Enlite sensor itself does use 2. I currently use the MiniMed g insulin pump. I received it a year ago through my insurance. The warranty is not up until Sept I even tried to get into the clinical trials for the g, but I never got a response from anyone.
I have been waiting for this pump since before the g was even available in the united states. My question is, will there be an opportunity for me to upgrade to the g before my warranty is up and without having to buy the g? Yes, we will have upgrade options for customers who are still in warranty to upgrade to the MiniMed G system. We will have more information on this in the coming weeks so stay tuned. I have not seen any information about in-warranty upgrade options yet.
Are we still waiting on information about these programs? We are offering a Priority Access program for our customers who are in-warranty to access the MiniMed G system. Please call to speak with one of our Diabetes Therapy Consultants who can discuss your upgrade options. I cannot speak specifically to Germany, but we expect regulatory approval outside of the U. What kind of information would you like to know about the MiniMed G system?
You can get more information here as well: My son currently uses the Minimed Veo pump, with Enlite sensors. Is Veo equivalent to G? When will the G be available in Canada? David, the Veo and MiniMed G are similar but not identical. The Threshold suspend range, max bolus, and other settings are different in the MiniMed G system. While I cannot speak specifically to Canada, we expect regulatory approval of the MiniMed G system outside of the US sometime in the summer of I have seen references to both the G and the G.
What is the difference between these two pumps? When will the details about the Priority Access Program and the details on how to enroll in the special survey program for the free upgrade from the G to the G? You can learn more about the Priority Access program here: Will the new system have bluetooth capability where it can send alarms and notifications to a smartphone app? My phone is always out, it would be nice to be able to have some control from the phone at some point in the future.
We have heard feedback like yours and are looking into this. Hi, I have had T1D for 22 years and been in insulin pump therapy for 4 years with a competitor. When I read the news from Web MD about this new pump I was really excited but after reading the comments above, and the info medtronic has released I have several remarks:. The MiniMed G system is the first hybrid closed loop system in the world, and we are continuing to work toward more advanced solutions like a fully closed loop system.
We have heard feedback like yours about having a tubeless pump, and have passed this along to our product development teams. Let me know if you were looking for a specific answer you did not read in the comments. We expect regulatory approval outside of the US sometime in summer , but I cannot speak to the timing on India specifically.
The system available outside of the U. We are currently working with payers to drive broad access for the MiniMed G system, and will share more information closer to launch in Spring You can learn more about our Priority Access program here: Here is the contact information for the China team. Does Medtronic have recommendations for the G during outpatient surgery?
Should the pump remain in auto mode or should auto mode be turned off? We will have more information on the MiniMed G system in the spring closer to launch. In general, this decision should be made between the patient undergoing surgery and their healthcare team. Leo, we are working with payers to establish coverage for the new system and should have more information in the coming weeks. More information will be shared when the MiniMed G system is available this spring.
We expect regulatory approval for the MiniMed G system outside of the US in summer , but I cannot yet speak to specific countries. Will this system be available for insulin dependent type 2 diabetic? Can this system be used on a type 2 diabetic? Currently, the MiniMed G system is only approved for people with type 1 diabetes ages 14 and older. However, we do have the MiniMed G system which is approved for people with type 2 diabetes.
I encourage you to discuss your options with your healthcare team. The nearby magnetic fields can render your devices nonfunctional or damage the part of the pump that regulates insulin delivery, possibly resulting in over-delivery which can cause severe hypoglycemia. If you are going to be exposed to any type magnetic fields, take OFF your pump, sensor, transmitter, meter and remote control before entering a room containing any of these pieces of equipment. If your pump is inadvertently exposed to a magnetic field, discontinue use and contact our Hour HelpLine 1.
I recently received the G and have received training via our local Diabetes Education Center at our hospital vast improvement over the series training along with the Enlite CGM. Thus far I have been on the for about two weeks and am really impressed with the pump itself. It is making me wonder if I made the right choice? Really like the technology but the reliability of readings seems at best marginal thus relying totally on the SG is becoming unreliable.
I will have a member of my team connect with you to try and help you out. HelloSara I have my older brother who lives in the middle east lost his vision because of type 1 diabetes my question is if I can order MiniMed g for him I live in Canada if you have a agency here.
We are expecting regulatory approval outside the US in Summer , but I cannot yet speak to specific countries. Please check with local contacts who would be happy to help you and your brother out: Much better than the old g. My sensor readings have all been really close to my bg readings. Please let us know if you have any questions along your journey.
Please clarify how accurate the sensor glucose reading is to the actual blood glucose reading?? I have the G and used the sensor for 6 months —only to find a point difference between the sensor and the blood reading. Plus I ended up checking my blood glucose MORE due to the alarms sounding off at all times of the day and night. I am for new technology but would like a system which improves my life without the added frustration.
The Guardian Sensor 3 is our newest and most advanced glucose sensor with enhanced accuracy and performance, and a longer 7-day life. I am a 32 year diabetic and a pump user of 24 years. Resulting in a near straight line on my sensor glucose. Going from hba1c of 9 to 6. There are only 3 reasons I bolus insulin. So, pretty much I live on 25 units of insulin a day via my basal delivery. Which to me would be amazing. Do I have this right? Suspend before low is a new Low Management feature that will temporarily stop insulin delivery if the sensor glucose value is approaching a preset low limit.
Andrew, the system requires a minimum not maximum of 8 units of insulin per day to operate safely, so should not be used by patients who require less than 8 total units of insulin per day. Hello, I am wondering if the closed loop will automatically compensate for blood sugars spikes that do not involve additional carb intake. It is not uncommon for my blood sugars to spike due to stress or hormonal changes, especially while I am asleep but only some nights.
Because carbohydrates are not part of these spikes, will my basal rate temporarily adjust to bring my blood sugar back down to a normal level while I am asleep, or will I be required to respond to an alert? Alisha, when used in Auto Mode, the MiniMed G system will automatically adjust your basal insulin dose to meet your insulin needs. This is based on your sensor glucose values and past insulin needs. But now, they are falling behind — lack of bluetooth support is an example. Also, the alarms cannot be heard or felt on the , so the haptic tap on the apple watch make sense.
And you only have to calibrate theirs every 12 hours? How did they beat the comapny who innovated it? You talk about it at trade shows. The MiniMed G system uses a different radio frequency that is more globally recognized. We have heard feedback like yours, and are working on connectivity for future products. The Guardian Sensor 3, which is used with the MiniMed G system, is the first and only sensor approved by the FDA to power a hybrid closed loop system.
The sensor is our most advanced and accurate glucose sensor to date, offers seven-days of continuous wear, and pairs with the Guardian Link 3 transmitter that features an intelligent diagnostics chip that continuously monitors the health of the sensor to reveal when additional calibrations are needed or the sensor should be changed.
Please understand, as a medical device company, we have to follow FDA guidelines, and per those guidelines, we are not able to discuss future products on social media. The FDA regulatory approval process is a complex one with a lot of moving pieces. Countries outside the US have a different regulatory approval process for medical devices, which is why some products are approved in other countries prior to the US.
Do you know when this pump will be available in Germany? Kind regards Christine Hümmer. Christine, we expect regulatory approval outside the US in Summer , but do not yet know which countries will receive approval. I apologize in advance if this question was already addressed. I am using the g. How would this new be different?
By the way I love my …was an animas customer for 10 years and made my switch last year. Hi, is there any timeline for approval in Australia? I can tell you we expect regulatory approval outside of the US in summer your winter , but we do not yet know in which countries this will happen. Just received the medtronic G. I really wish I would of been informed of the new pump being made available in spring I would of waited for the new pump.
Are new pump patients allowed to upgrade when the comes available and if so will that be aloud at no charge to the patient. Based on FDA rules, we cannot talk about future products. We have heard feedback like yours and have passed this along to our product development team. Customers who are on the MiniMed G system are automatically enrolled in the Priority Access program to be first in line to receive the MiniMed G system once available.
You will be contacted closer to the launch date to see if you want to upgrade. I am a late onset Type 1 diabetic. Just now looking at insulin pump therapy. Do I go for a G or wait until G comes out. Insurance coverage is a real concern for me. I am definitely confused on all the jargon used about pumps.
Could use some real help. I have had a serious hypoglycemic episode and like your insulin suspend feature. Currently using injection pens. Please email me your contact information at betweenthelines medtronic. When will this system be released in Europe say the Netherlands. This works fine but my Insulin pump needs to be replaced by a new version because is reaches its end of its technical lifetime.
So when will the G be release in Europe and what must I do to get the G instead of the G who is current released version in the Netherlands. We expect regulatory approval outside the US in summer , but I cannot yet speak to which countries. Frank, the MiniMed G system is not compatible with our MiniMed Connect, as they are on two different radio frequencies. After spending 20 years in aerospace, changing a frequency is a very easy task … AND given that the data is already being sent to the Contour next test kit, and allowing this device to act as a remote control, most of the work is done!
So that leaves it to marketing and executives to simply decide. Sad if with this much advancement Medtronics will drop the ball and not make the G smartphone compatible. Hi Sara, The iphone app is a must have. I cannot believe that Medtronic would launch the G without a similar app.
Medtronic needs to do a better job of propagating its technology to the next level. Please run this up the development flagpole and get us that iphone support we deserve from the beginning of the G launch!! Thanks for your feedback, Mark. We have heard this feedback and are looking into connectivity for future products.
I agree with both Frank and Mark. Or could this be Medtronic holding things back like Apple does to get you to buy a new pump every year? Or can you set the target to something higher, say, if you want to be even more conservative?
Our endo is suggesting he go to a pump now and this is the one he is looking into. I know that the FDA has it approved for 14 and up.
Will insurance cover it for my 11 year old. Hi Sara, My son is currently on the G and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Will this type of sharing technology be available on the G with the Guardian sensor? Seems like a no brainer to me. Not sure why it would not be in the new pumps. We expect regulatory approval Summer , but I cannot yet speak specifically to India.
I have the g i just left my DR. All customers on the MiniMed G system are automatically enrolled in the priority access program to receive the MiniMed G system once available.
Hi, I have 3 questions please: My daughter has the g pump, which works with the Guardian sensor 2. Will the guardian sensor 3 be compatible for use with the g? As a parent getting readings to my phone would give great peace of mind and could save her life.
Is there a Medtronic solution on the cards other than the medtronic connect as that would entail additional cost and a third attachment which simply will not fit on a small body. Is there a good technical reason why the guardian sensor 3 does not have built in dual transmission i. We have heard feedback similar to yours, and are working on connectivity for our future products. Sara, since the FDA has already approved the g why is Medtronic reluctant to post exactly what the features are for the g?
This would help people decide if they want to purchase the new pump or wait for the next version of the pump. How quickly can I get a G? Can you narrow down the availability date? We will keep the community updated as soon as we can.
I am interested in Minimed G how ever i have initied now to get minimed G. I just wanted to know below 2 question 1 I got to know from Medtrocs team that if i enroll now for G then i will be part of priority access and g will be upgrade in zero cost.
My job is travelling and most of the time i will be in visiting different customer. If you are on the MiniMed G system, you are automatically enrolled in the priority access program to be first in line for the MiniMed G system once it is available. The cost differs depending on various factors. The bottom of the plunger pushed out so I had to push it back in. Would Medtronic be willing to upgrade mine to the since my Revel is plunger faulty?
Hello, I would like to know when the does come out do your past customers who purchased the get first opportunity for the ? I did not purchase the sensor or transmitter with the but will do so depending on if these work with the also.
Customers who are on the MiniMed G system are automatically enrolled in our Priority Access program to be first in line to receive the MiniMed G system when available. Daniel, we expect regulatory approval outside the US in summer , but I cannot yet speak to specific countries. How do I inquire about coverage and what our cost would be? I am on Medicare and it looks like when I see my doctor on Monday I will be on the patient trial list!
Sara I wish you were my wife! I hope we can talk soon. Chris, we expect the MiniMed G system to be commercially available at currently offered Medtronic pump system pricing. Hi Sara, I was wondering will Medtronics eventually make a bigger reservoir for the pump as of right now i have to change every 2 days. Hi Shannon, I am not allowed to talk about future products, due to FDA rules, but will be sure to pass along your feedback to our product development team.
Does it work with type two diabetes and do you have Dr. Jim, the MiniMed G system is currently only approved for people with type 1 diabetes. I am not even sure medteonic has my email address. What should I do? Someone from Medtronic will be texting and emailing you in the coming weeks to provide you with more information.
Will the new g use the same infusion sets and reservoirs that the current g pump uses? Will the current Silhouettes work with the new pump? Will the g be able to accommodate the smaller 1.
Hi Sandy, you can use the same infusion sets with the MiniMed G system and only the 3. Sara, thank you for all your thorough answers. I read this entire forum tonight. I have contacted a minimed specialist and am excited to get a pump for my 17 year old daughter who has been type 1 diagnosised for three years now.
This has been an awful experience, but am happy to be getting my baby a pump. Keep up the good work on the technological advances. What are the glucose limits that can be input into the pump? Does this answer your question, or were you asking about something else? Ok so in Auto Mode the target is …can it be lowered? And if it cannot be lowered, in manual mode can you set the target lower? Say to instead of ? Lisabeth, your doctor would need to write you a prescription for the MiniMed G system.
Insurance coverage will vary depending on your plan. Sara, The commercial release of the G is in spring of Can you provide any further details when these will begin shipping? Jason, we will start the full commercial launch for the remaining individuals in the Priority Access program in June.
It seems as though this method would offer so much peace of mind and their Endo just discussed the pump option with them recently. However, it would really be great to reduce the stress and constant worrying each day what their blood sugar is if there was an app for phone or software for computer, that can either be used with new G or G pump.
Are there any plans in to have app or software work with newer model G or G. LB, You sound like a great, caring friend! We are working hard on developing new technologies to provide people with more convenient options to access their or their loved ones health information anytime, anywhere. Hi Amy, you can sign up through our Priority Access program: My husband has been on a metronics pump for years now — but more important to me is that when he is not at home I can read his levels on my phone.
Pump sounds great but if metronics already has that capability why would you not make it compatible with the new pump from that the start? This is the only reason he wont switch. Michele, the MiniMed G system was approved faster than anticipated. This is an important feature we are working to develop, but we unfortunately are not able to share timelines. Will the new g have the same capability as the with the mini med connect? With the work I do, i can not always pull out my pump to see why it is going off, would be nice if it could link to a smart watch.
Christopher, the MiniMed G system is not compatible with MiniMed Connect, as they reside on different radio frequencies. We are looking into connectivity options for future systems.
For customers currently interested in the remote connectivity feature, we recommend the MiniMed G system. This class was very informative and extremely beneficial to me and my wife. Educators are great but after using the pump for a while, users need a different perspective and I find the intense study of these classes to be invaluable.
Do you remember how you found out about the class and signed up? My HbA1c is below Cleveland Clinic 5. I would like to switch to g if Medicare starts covering Guardian 3 sensors. If I set g auto off, will I be able to use the g as I have my g? The MiniMed G system clinical results showed safety in several areas including A1C reduction, time in range, and lack of severe hypoglycemia or DKA. These results were gathered across a range of A1C groups 5.
