New Blood Sugar Monitor Has Warning Alarm
System Designed to Alert Diabetes Patients to High, Low Blood Sugar Levels
WebMD Medical News
February 13, 2004

The FDA approved a new continuous blood sugar monitoring device designed to protect diabetes patients by alerting them to potentially dangerous fluctuations in blood sugar levels.

By sounding an alarm when blood sugar levels become too high or too low, the Guardian Continuous Glucose Monitoring System warns patients to take action to bring their blood sugar levels back to normal.

When blood sugar remains high, as in poorly controlled or untreated diabetes, complications such as blindness, kidney failure, amputation, impotence, and heart disease can result. Dangerously low blood sugar levels can occur from treatment, excess exercise, or nutritional problems and can result in loss of consciousness or even death.

The new blood sugar monitoring device is worn outside the body and uses a blood sugar sensor placed under the skin to continuously record blood sugar readings for up to three days. These blood sugar readings are transmitted to the monitor.
The Guardian system can be used for any type 1 or type 2 diabetes patients – both children and adults — to help reduce erratic blood sugar fluctuations, according to Medtronic. The system is ideal for parents closely monitoring their children’s disease, patients who have lost their ability to detect rapid changes in blood sugar levels, and women with gestational diabetes or patients wishing to become pregnant.

The Guardian is manufactured by MiniMed, there contact information is:

Medtronic MiniMed
18000 Devonshire Street
Northridge, CA 91325-1219

Product Information (toll free): 1-800-MINIMED (646-4633)
International Headquarters:     1-818-362-5958

Medtronic is working on plans to combine the continuous glucose monitoring system with a diabetes insulin pump, with the hopes of one day creating an artificial pancreas. If all goes as planned, this new system would not only continuously monitor blood sugar levels but would be equipped to respond to these levels with a proper dose of insulin.
