Medtronic 670G insulin pumps do things a little differently than the rest of the insulin pumps Tidepool supports. To account for these unique features, we made some specific updates to the Basics and Daily view.
Please note: It may be helpful to review this guide detailing Tidepool's Daily View, and this guide detailing Tidepool's Basics View first.
If you need to first upload your Medtronic 670G data, please see this guide.

On the Basics view under Basal section you will see the all the times the pump exited Auto Mode under the "Auto Mode Exited" heading.
Blood glucose meter readings have a variety of different states depending on how it was taken and what you did with the reported value. Here’s a breakdown of each label:
- Source — Manual: a blood glucose reading entered into an insulin pump from a non-linked meter or continuous glucose monitor (CGM).
- Source — Linked: a blood glucose reading transmitted by a linked blood glucose meter.
- Confirm BG — Yes: the recorded blood glucose reading was accepted (confirmed) on the pump screen.
- Confirm BG — No: the recorded blood glucose reading was not accepted (unconfirmed) on the pump screen.
- Confirm BG — Timed Out: the pump screen timed out before a recorded blood glucose reading was accepted or rejected.
