The Paradigm Revel insulin pump is a complete package that you operate with ease. Insulin pumps, in general, allow the person with diabetes more flexibility and greater control of their blood glucose levels. This particular pump offers an integrated system for the ultimate and simplest diabetes control. By using the Medtronic insulin pump, the continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system (transmitter and sensors) and the software you will have a clear picture of your glucose patterns and understand any adjustments you or your healthcare team need to make. Let technology work for you!
