When you combine your MiniMed Paradigm® Revel™ Insulin Pump with CGM, you’ll always know your glucose levels and where they’re heading. As you approach your glucose limits, you’ll be warned to take action.

Benefits of CGM:

Easily Know Your Glucose Level

At-a-glance glucose readings let you easily and discreetly view your current glucose values continuously throughout the day.

Anticipate Glucose Changes

Trend arrows inform you if your glucose levels are rising or falling quickly, enabling you to take early action to reduce unnecessary lows and highs.

Avoid Oncoming Lows and Highs

New Predictive Alerts can be customized to notify you up to 30 minutes before you reach your personal low or high glucose limits. These alerts help you to react sooner to high and low glucose levels, and have been shown to improve hypoglycemia detection by 36%.

Identify Glucose Patterns

Trend graphs allow you to view your past glucose levels to help you identify patterns and make informed decisions. You can scroll through past glucose readings and see the “big picture” of your glucose control.
