Whether your child was just diagnosed with diabetes or has been managing it for some time, Medtronic is the right place to turn for help. Together with your healthcare professional, we are committed to providing the best products, service, and support for you and your family.
Like a pancreas, an insulin pump continuously delivers tiny doses of insulin to your child's body and it replaces the need to give routine insulin injections with syringes or pens. Insulin pumps are not implanted in your child's body. They are small enough to fit in a pocket or on your child's waistband.
While many options are available to children with diabetes, Medtronic insulin pumps deliver precise, timely insulin doses 24/7, similar to the way a healthy pancreas delivers basal insulin.
The MiniMed™ 670G system with SmartGuard™ technology monitors your child’s glucose levels day and night to self-adjust background insulin based on his or her needs.* It’s now available for children 7 years of age or older who require insulin for the management of Type 1 diabetes mellitus.
