Tips & Tricks

You can calibrate anytime during any rate of change. However, calibrating with two down arrows may decrease accuracy until the next calibration.

  • Before bedtime.
  • Before insulin.
  • Enter your meter BG reading into the pump immediately after testing your BG. Do not wait to enter it later.


Did You Know:

You do not need to wait until you are alerted to calibrate. Time your calibrations so you will not have to wake up in the middle of the night. For example, if it’s 21:00 and you know a calibration will be required by 3:00, go ahead and calibrate before bed. This will start the 12 hour calibration clock over.
