The number of people using insulin pumps has grown rapidly since their introduction over 30 years ago. Much of this growth has come from pump wearers enthusiastically sharing the benefits they experience. When used well, an insulin pump allows the wearer to feel better, live more freely and have fewer diabetes-related health problems. As pump, CGM, and closed loop technologies, along with their benefits for control, continue to evolve, the number of pump users will continue to grow.
The decision to go on a pump is often a turning point in a person's approach to diabetes care. Those who use pumps say things like, "For the first time in years, I can eat when I want to," or "I can really control my blood sugars now, and I feel better, too."
