As our understanding of diabetes increases, people living with diabetes are being given an expanded tool box of products and devices that can be used for treatment and daily management. Insulin pumps have been used since the 1970s. So, as a category, they are not new. They have, however, increased in popularity as the technology associated with them has evolved. Insulin delivery through a pump is popular with people with extremely busy lifestyles and the pumps may provide a more stable, consistent blood sugar control.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA), offers an Insulin Pump 101 for those new to pumping and as an update on the latest features of the new class of insulin pumps. The pump parts and associated terminology are explained.
Diabetes Management & Supplies also offers a survey tool that can assist in helping to determine what tools and products are best for you. Visit Diabetes Management & Supplies or click HERE to take the brief survey to learn more about options for monitoring and medication delivery.
