BETTER CONTROL FOR YOUR PATIENTS
WITH GUARDIAN TM CONNECT1,2
If your patients use Multiple Daily Injections (MDI) to manage their diabetes, Medtronic's new Guardian Connect can help make their life a little bit easier. With Guardian Connect, your patients will be able to check their glucose levels, anytime on their mobile device. Guardian connect empowers patients to take control of their diabetes.
what is guardian connect?
Guardian Connect is Medtronic’s latest innovation for Continuous Glucose Monitoring. It works with 3 elements: a thin sensor, a small plastic transmitter attached to the sensor and the Guardian Connect app on a compatible iOS device*. A quick glimpse at the mobile screen will let them know their current sensor glucose level and where it’s heading. But there’s more. Setting-up low and high alerts is easy so that patient can be alerted if they are heading towards a hypo or hyper. It is also easy to share patient glucose reading with their family or friends. Care partners can even receive a text message when the patient drops below their target range. Guardian Connect does not work with Insulin Pumps.
This is connected to your transmitter making it one small seamless unit. The sensor continuously measures glucose levels.
The Guardian™ Connect App lets you check your glucose levels at a glance, displays glucose trends and sends alerts on your iPhone or ipod Touch.

WHY STANDALONE CONTINUOUS GLUCOSE MONITORING?
- SMBGs are frequently performed less often than recommended5, because of discomfort, fear, pain or lifestyle6,7
- Up to 75% of hyper- and hypoglycaemic episodes can therefore go undetected8
- Patients may reduce insulin intake out of fear of hypoglycaemia9
- Real time continuous glucose monitoring can further improve glycaemic control1-3 and reduce fear of hypoglycaemia 10,11
- Endocrinologist associations endorse the benefits of CGM12
