Tandem t:slim X2 pump with Control-IQ (using Dexcom sensor) launches in USA

Tandem Diabetes Care has launched the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Control-IQ technology, an advanced hybrid-closed loop feature designed to help increase time in range. It is the first and only system cleared to deliver automatic correction boluses in addition to adjusting insulin to help prevent high and low blood sugar.  

The system integrates with Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), which requires no fingersticks for calibration or diabetes treatment decisions. 

The company will soon send emails with update instructions to all in-warranty t:slim X2 users in the US, who have the option to add the new feature free of charge via remote software update. t:slim X2 pumps pre-loaded with Control-IQ technology are now shipping to new customers.
