Is a Continuous Glucose Monitor Right for You?

The Guardian Real-Time Glucose Monitoring System can be used to better control glucose levels

Detail - The Guardian Real-Time Glucose Monitoring System can be used to better control glucose levels.

Medtronic Diabetes’ Guardian® Real-Time Continuous Glucose Monitoring System can be used by type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients who would like better glucose control to improve the health and quality of their lives.

Ask the members of your diabetes care team if they have experience using continuous glucose monitors. It is important that they understand how a continuous glucose monitor works and how it can be an important part of managing your diabetes and protecting your health. If you feel that a continuous glucose monitor is right for you, your doctor will need to approve and authorise use. Please ask your healthcare professional for advice.

When you get your Guardian Real-Time Continuous Glucose Monitor, your healthcare team will need to train you in its use. They will also help you determine how to incorporate it into your own diabetes management strategy along with diet, exercise, medication, and insulin, if you are taking it.

Once you start living with your Guardian Real-Time System, you will also have the support of Medtronic Diabetes at your fingertips.
