In this video, two of our clinical specialists walk you through the steps to getting started on the new MiniMed 530G with Enlite. Once you’ve been trained on the new system, we recommend watching this video for a refresher on the process of changing out your infusion set and sensor.

Very interesting! I hope to have one very soon; it's in the works! I've been injecting insulin for 38 years, but look forward to improved control!

That’s a great question, Carol! Based on tests performed, at glucose levels greater than or equal to 75 mg/dl, the CONTOUR NEXT LINK meter was found to be 95.1% accurate within 5 mg/dl, and 100% accurate within 10 mg/dl. At glucose levels less than 75 mg/dl, the meter was found to be accurate 83.1% within 5 mg/dl, 99.1% accurate within 10 mg/dl, and 100% accurate within 15 mg/dl. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Darrell, it might seem like a lot initially, but everything comes together during training. Before starting on the insulin pump and CGM, we would schedule training for you to learn how to use and insert the Enlite sensor, and cover how to use the insulin pump and new Threshold Suspend feature of the MiniMed 530G. Please let me know if you’d like to speak to someone and I’d be happy to have a member of my team reach out to you.

Hi Michael. I’m glad this video was useful and informative for you! That’s very exciting you are going to be starting on the new MiniMed 530G with Enlite! Please keep us posted on your journey with the new system.
