Insulin Pump Life

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

  • better insulin delivery
  • more convenience and flexibility
  • greater precision
  • more reliable insulin action
  • easier problem solving
  • less hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia awareness
  • fewer morning highs

Insulin pumps have many advantages, but they are also mechanical devices that depend on several components to work properly. Like any device, a pump requires a conscientious user to go through a learning curve in order to make it work properly. Take a look at our guides for Pump Preparation and Handling Pump Problems
