Insulin Pump Therapy

Insulin pump therapy is another option (besides injections) to manage your diabetes and deliver insulin. It offers greater flexibility and allows you to fine tune your blood sugar control. If you are motivated and taking multiple daily insulin injections, checking blood sugars, counting carbohydrates, and in good communication with your healthcare team, you may want to consider insulin pump therapy. Like a pancreas, an insulin pump continuously releases small amounts of rapid acting insulin to keep blood sugar levels steady between meals and during sleep.

To learn more, talk to your endocrinologist about insulin pump therapy to see if its right for you.
