Review: Medtronic’s Minimed 630g Insulin Pump

I have used the Minimed 630G Insulin Pump System by Medtronic for the past 30 days. This review is my opinion of the pump, both positive and negative. I have used insulin pumps since I got my first Disetronic H-Tron V-100 in 1994. I got a Minimed 506 pump in 1998 and have been a fan of the Minimed/Medtronic pumps since. Until now. Minimed 630G Insulin Pump System The Minimed 630G Insulin Pump System comes with the pump, the CGM transmitter, and a Contour Next Link 2.4 blood glucose meter. The three devices work well together, once set up right. Medtronic also has an early access program. This lets you buy the Minimed 630G now, and upgrade to the upcoming Minimed 670G in spring of 2017. Receiving the Pump The 630G Pump comes in several boxes. The pump comes in an 8″x10″x2.25″ box that has the pump and several small items like clips, batteries, a manual, and a quick start guide. Another box of the same size has the Contour Next Link 2.4 meter. A second box arrived a few days later with the infusion sets and reservoirs, followed by another box a few days later with the CGM sensors. I got another box a week later with the CGM transmitter. In the past, the local Medtronic trainer Continue reading >>

    My new endo wants me to consider a Medtronic 630G + CGM. I'm currently on MDI. She is suggesting this one because it turns off the insulin if one goes low. Does anyone have any experience with this? I've not worn a pump before so any words of wisdom/opinions would be appreciated.

    It's a pretty new pump! I have only seen 2 user reviews and 1 hates it and the other loves it. I do recommend an insulin pump as long as one knows how to use it. The pumper needs to be the one that manages all things that happen with it so I would not connect this 630 pump to me. I do not want my pump to make decisions regarding turning off my insulin.

  3. i don't know about this.
    I have a pump and a separate CGM.
    Is this pump/CGM covered by Medicare or a Medicare supplement?

    630G Introduction MiniMed 630G seemed to be the pump for Champ. We looked at Animus, the TSlim X2, Insulet Omnipod, and a couple more. The one that settled best with me was the MiniMed630G. We chose MiniMed630G because in the summer (ish), Medtronic is scheduled to release a new system called Medtronic MiniMed 670G/Enlite 3 Hybrid Closed Loop. We did not get the Closed Loop system yet since it isn’t FDA approved. Although, as soon as it comes t ...
