Insulin pumps are becoming increasingly popular treatment option for insulin delivery to diabetes patients. An insulin pump is a computerized device that delivers a steady, measured dose of insulin through a flexible tube called a catheter. Some devices are wireless and others can be attached discretely under the clothes, on a belt on in a pocket.

By using an insulin pump, you can match your insulin to your lifestyle rather than adjusting your lifestyle to your body's response to insulin injections. With help from your health care team, insulin pumps can help you keep your blood glucose levels within your target ranges both day and night. People of all ages with type 1 diabetes use insulin pumps, and people with type 2 diabetes have started to use them as well.

Ask our certified diabetes educators for more information on the different options and features available for insulin pumps.
