About the t:slim X2™ Insulin Pump with Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM Integration

The t:slim X2™ Insulin Pump, when used with the Dexcom G5® Mobile continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system, is a sensor-augmented insulin pump approved to let users make treatment decisions without pricking their finger. It is up to 38% smaller than other pumps but includes advanced features like a large colour touchscreen, Bluetooth® radio, rechargeable battery, USB connectivity, and a 300-unit insulin capacity. It is also capable of remote software updates, allowing existing users to add features like CGM integration from home.

NZMS Diabetes’ existing contract with PHARMAC allows for upgrades to funded technology and NZMS Diabetes is discussing this option with PHARMAC. The t:slim X2 Pump launch date for privately funded customers will be announced shortly.
