The low glucose features allow you to set your pump to alert, to suspend insulin, or alert and suspend insulin if you are either approaching your low Sensor Glucose limit, or you have reached your low Sensor Glucose limit.
The following table describes the low glucose alert settings.
| ||How it works|
|Suspend before low|
Your pump temporarily stops delivering insulin if it is predicted that your Sensor Glucose reading will be approaching the low limit within 30 minutes.
Turning on suspend before low, automatically turns on alert on low.
|Alert before low||Your system alerts you any time it is predicted that your Sensor Glucose reading will reach the low limit within 30 minutes. The alert before low can be used whether suspend before low is turned off or on.|
|Suspend on low||Your pump temporarily stops delivering insulin when your sensor glucose value falls to or below the pre-set low limit.|
Turning on suspend on low, automatically turns on alert on low.
|Alert on low||Your system alerts you when your Sensor Glucose reading reaches or falls below your low limit. This is not an optional alert.|
When your pump suspends insulin due to ‘Suspend before low’ the message ‘Sensor glucose approaching Low Limit. Check BG.’ is displayed on your Homescreen.
If you DO NOT respond to the alert, the pump will suspend insulin delivery, sounds a siren alarm and displays “I have diabetes, call for emergency assistance.” The pump basal rate will resume in three ways:
- You manually restart the basal rate
- The basal rate is automatically resumed based on the following:
- The pump has been suspended for at least 30 minutes AND
- The SG shows above the low limit AND
- The SG is predicted to continue to rise for the next 30 minutes
- Insulin delivery has been suspended for 2 hours
If you DO respond to the alert, you can choose to suspend or resume basal insulin delivery.
