Pump Life

Other than the obvious benefits of fewer fingersticks per day, the ability to give insulin whenever spontaneous events arise, and quicker adjustmetns for changes in activity, a pump offers other benefits and conveniences:

  • more convenience and flexibility
  • greater precision
  • more reliable insulin action
