Can I enroll if I use an insulin pump?

Yes. Insulin pumps do not require a specific meter for them to function as designed. There are some insulin pumps that are integrated with specific meters so that the blood glucose reading can be automatically sent from the glucometer to the pump, however, insulin pumps allow for manual entry of blood glucose values from stand-alone meters such as the Livongo meter.

You will continue to use your current methods for obtaining supplies specific to your insulin pump, but you can join the Livongo Program and use the Livongo meter and receive the blood glucose checking supplies as a part of the program.

Can I enroll if I already use a continuous glucose monitor?

Yes. You can use the Livongo glucometer for your stand-alone glucometer readings and take advantage of receiving the blood glucose checking supplies, support, tools, education and other benefits of the program.

If you choose not to use the meter, you still have full access to all of the diabetes management products Livongo® offers (meter, coaching, free test strips/supplies, data).

What should I expect after I enroll?

Welcome Kit
A Livongo Welcome Kit will arrive to your home by mail a few days after enrollment, and will include your new Livongo glucometer, a charging cord for the meter, test strips, lancing device and supply of lancets, carrying case, and instructions to get you started.
