Diabetes Team launches high-tech insulin pump for treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus

The new MiniMed 780G insulin pump, which has been available on the Belgian market since the beginning of October, automatically adjusts the insulin dosage every five minutes based on the patient's needs. It also corrects both the high and the low values. Since carbohydrate counts are not always accurate, this insulin pump can also adjust the insulin dose after the bolus was delivered with the meal.

The system also includes the MiniMed Mobile app, which allows patients to monitor glycaemia control using the smartphone and receive alarms or alerts in the event of a falling or rising trend.

This insulin pump will help patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus to manage their diabetes even better with the necessary protection against hypoglycaemia.

The insulin pump will be presented on Monday, 26 October 2020 from 7 to 8pm during a webinar.

  • 7pm: introduction by Dr. Mirra Boer
  • 7.10 pm: presentation of the Minimed 780G system in the treatment of diabetes type 1
  • 8pm: Q&A session

The webinar will start at 7pm sharp, please login 5-10 minutes before the session. Make sure you have a good internet connection.
