Blood glucose is more than just a number

How do Insulin pumps work?

Like a healthy pancreas, insulin pumps deliver only one type of insulin. Using your personal settings, the insulin is delivered both continuously (basal) and in larger doses for meals (bolus).

Simple basal dosing

You can personalise your t:slim X2 Insulin Pump™ to deliver a varied amount of insulin to meet your changing needs throughout the day and night.

  • Small basal dosing: 0.1 units per hour
  • Small basal increments: 0.001 increments above 0.1 units

Simple bolus dosing

The t:slim X2 Insulin Pump allows you to deliver mealtime insulin - your bolus - using the simple, colour touchscreen and the integrated calculator with carbohydrate adding capabilities.

  • Small bolus dosing: 0.05 units
  • Small bolus increments: 0.01 increments above 0.05 units

 

 

There is also a 10 second delay after hitting deliver, to allow you to cancel if you change your mind.


Now with Dexcom G6® Mobile CGM integration

The t:slim X2 Insulin Pump is the only available pump that integrates with Dexcom G6® Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM), which is the only CGM approved Dexcom insulin pump to let you make treatment decisions without pricking your finger.


How does CGM work?

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) provides real-time glucose readings every five minutes throughout the day and night, notifying you of highs and lows so you can respond.

Glucose data is sent wirelessly to your t:slim X2 Insulin Pump and compatible smart device via Bluetooth® technology.

A discrete sensor located just under your skin measures your glucose levels for up to seven days.

When it comes to managing your blood glucose levels, its just as important to know where you're going as it is to know where you are.

CGM provides up to 288 readings per day, giving you insights that finger tests can't match.
