In addition to glucose monitoring, the SmartGuard feature is
the main benefit of this pump compared to the previous models. You could use CGM with older models,
but the true innovation for this insulin pump is… …the fact that it alerts you when you approach hypoglycemia,
which means that hypoglycemia disappears. The MiniMed 640G SmartGuard feature
helped me a lot in managing hypoglycemia. Low prediction was always accurate and, besides, the fact that insulin delivery is resumed once you reach the standard blood glucose levels… …is also very helpful, because you do not need to worry about it. Especially at night, you can relax and
let the pump do its job while you are sleeping. I would recommend SmartGuard
to people with type 1 diabetes. Basically, I would explain how convenient and useful it is, and
I would tell them not to worry or be afraid about insulin delivery. It is safe and works well.
