MiniMed® Veo™ with Low Glucose Suspend

The MiniMed® Veo™ is the only sensor-augmented pump with a low glucose suspend feature- which is clinically proven to significantly reduce hypoglycemia events1. 
LGS has been proven to1:
  • 37.5% less nocturnal hypoglycemia exposure
  • 29.8% reduction in the number of hypo events during the night and day
  • Decreased hypo exposure without deteriorating HbA1C or significant rebound hyperglycemia 

Insulin Pumps & Type 2 Diabetes: The OpT2mise Study

Significant HbA1c reduction for type 2 diabetes, now clinically proven, with the MiniMed® Veo™ insulin pump2
 
The Medtronic-sponsored OpT2mise study is the largest (331 patients) randomized, controlled trial on insulin pump technology for type 2 diabetes. This international, multicenter (36 centers around the globe), parallel-group study consisted of a run-in period, a six-month randomized phase and a six-month continuation phase. CSII use in sub-optimally controlled T2D provides improvements in overall glucose control vs MDI2:
  • Significant decrease in HbA1C levels (-1.1% vs baseline,  -0.7% between group difference)
  • 55% of patients achieving HbA1C < 8%
  • Significant reduction in the time spent in hyperglycemia
  • No increase in the time spent in hypoglycemia
  • 20% less insulin used
