Tandem Insulin Pump

Control‐IQ technology is designed to help increase time in range using Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring, CGM, values to predict glucose levels 30 minutes ahead and adjust
insulin delivery accordingly.


Icons on the pump screen indicate when insulin dosing is increasing, decreasing, or being stopped by  the system. A small, wearable sensor and transmitter sends your glucose numbers to a smart device or  receiver every 5 minutes. It's easy to wear and easy to use 

 Automatic Insulin Adjustments. Control-IQ technology automatically adjusts insulin levels based on  continuous glucose monitoring readings. 

 Automatic Correction Boluses. It can also deliver automatic correction boluses (up to one an hour) to  help prevent hyperglycemia. 

 Activity Settings. Includes optional settings for Sleep Activity or Exercise Activity that adjust the range  of treatment values. 

 Zero Fingersticks. For calibration or mealtime dosing, when the t:slim X2 insulin pump is integrated  with Dexcom G6 CGM.
