Using the Sleep Activity with Control-IQ technology [video]

Sleep and Exercise Activity Quick Reference Sheet

When a Sleep Activity is enabled, the treatment values are lower and narrower since there are fewer variables that affect glucose values during sleep, for example you are not eating or exercising.

When Control-IQ technology predicts a glucose value less than or equal to 112.5 mg/dL, it will start to decrease basal insulin delivery and will stop basal insulin delivery if the predicted glucose value will be less than or equal to 70 mg/dL 30 minutes in the future.  

If Control-IQ technology predicts that the glucose value will be at or over 120 mg/dL, basal insulin delivery will be increased. Note that when a Sleep Activity is enabled, Control-IQ technology will not deliver Automatic Correction Boluses.   

You have two options for starting a Sleep Activity:  you can manually start a sleep activity or you can program multiple sleep schedules.

Programming at least one sleep schedule is recommended; otherwise, you would have to remember to enable and disable the sleep setting twice daily.

The ability for Control-IQ technology to achieve the target glucose range when a Sleep Activity is enabled is partially dependent on how long you sleep.

In order for Control-IQ technology to operate ideally, you should plan to sleep at least 5 consecutive hours when enabling or scheduling the Sleep Activity.
