Frequently Asked Questions

The Tandem t:slim X2 can adjust your glucose treatment while you are sleeping. You can either set up a sleep schedule in advance or manually activate/deactivate sleep mode on your device.

The Tandem t:slim X2 is not waterproof, but it is considered watertight (IPX7). Tandem pumps have been tested at a depth of three feet for thirty minutes. However, users are encouraged not to use their pumps while showering, bathing, or swimming.

This insulin pump’s cartridge can hold up to 300 units of insulin.

To put your Tandem t:slim X2 into storage mode, connect it to a power source and press and hold the wake button for 30-40 seconds. Release the button when your device beeps or vibrates three times, and unplug the pump. To turn the pump on again, simply reconnect it to power.

A step-by-step guide to the cartridge loading process for the Tandem t:slim X2 can be found here.

Control-IQ technology uses values from a Dexcom G6 CGM to predict a user’s glucose values 30 minutes in advance. With these estimates, it can increase or decrease insulin delivery to maximize the user’s time in range.

Like Control-IQ technology, Basal-IQ technology relies on information from a Dexcom CGM system. This technology works to predict and counteract blood sugar lows; when a user’s glucose level is expected to fall under 80 mg/dL, insulin delivery is temporarily suspended.

If you see the message “Out of Range Alert Control-IQ unavailable,” your pump is unable to communicate with your transmitter. Control-IQ technology will continue to work for 15 minutes after this message appears; however, it will not be able to adjust insulin delivery past the 20-minute mark.
