JOHN’S STORY OUR COMMUNITY

Read about John’s experience with the MiniMed™ 670G insulin pump system.

MEET JOHN

FAMILY MAN WITH AN EDGE

John pushed the limits on all his activities for as long as he could remember: extreme sports, travelling the world for work, and always making family his first priority — including coaching his daughter in skydiving. He never let type 1 diabetes hold him back.

As he grew older, John started to think more about diabetes’ long-term complications and his family’s concern about his glucose levels dropping too low at night — especially when he was travelling.

A LEGENDARY ENCOUNTER

John refused to put his life on hold. He put all his energy into exploring ways to help keep his glucose levels in range. Then he discovered that the MiniMed 670G system with SmartGuard™ hybrid closed loop technology automatically adjusts2 insulin delivery to help  keep his glucose levels in check. He knew this could decrease the chance of dangerous highs and lows holding him or his family back1.

GOING THE DISTANCE, SAFELY

With new information to optimize his glucose levels when he travels for work, John has become the confident traveller he always wanted to be. His wife sleeps better now, knowing that SmartGuard Auto Mode helps to stabilize his glucose levels automatically.2

Doctors told me to take it easy. I don’t know what that means.

JOHN HAS FEWER HIGHS AND LOWS, ENJOYING LIFE TO THE MAX

TIME FOR A MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDE

Because he’s using the world’s first self-adjusting2 insulin pump system, John can go out for a bike ride confident that his glucose levels will stay in range1 thanks to SmartGuard Auto Mode. 

FEWER HIGHS, LESS WORRY

Because he’s using the world’s first hybrid closed loop system, John notices fewer glucose highs and lows. He can enjoy the extreme sports he loves at any time of day or night, and has seen his A1C improve.
