Here at Medtronic Diabetes, we’re committed to continuing to improve our products and to enable people to better manage their diabetes. The safety of you, our customers, is absolutely our top priority. This is why I’m writing today to let you know that, if you are a Medtronic customer who uses a Paradigm insulin pump, this week you and your healthcare provider will receive a letter from us in the mail. This letter is a voluntary notification about two potential issues with your pump: a loose drive support cap and a reminder of our instructions for water safety.
We’re confident in the reliability of our Paradigm insulin pump platform and its ability to deliver safe and effective therapy for those who need it. However, because the safety of customers like you is our top priority, it is important for Medtronic to communicate these potential issues so that you are aware that they exist and know what to do should you suspect there is an issue. We anticipate that only a small number of products will show signs of damage and need to be returned.
You can find more information, including a copy of the letter you’ll receive this week and answers to key questions, here: www.medtronicdiabetes.com/support/product-updates.
Should you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-888-204-7616.
