What is insulin pump therapy?
To those motivated to use insulin pump therapy to keep their glucose in check, it is a tremendous tool. It is an effective tool for adults and children – both – with type 1 diabetes, as well as those type 2 patients who require insulin.
The insulin pump relies on rapid-acting insulin. Pump users take rapid-acting insulin injected in minute quantities throughout the day. This neutralizes the risk of hypoglycemia and low blood sugar that can be caused by the peaking of large insulin doses, which is a significant advantage compared to multiple daily injections.
Insulin pumps, therefore, offer greater lifestyle choice flexibility. People with diabetes become more flexible with regard to meals, sleep and physical activity. The slow and steady basal infusion of rapid-acting insulin delivered through a pump means that there is no peak. So people with diabetes can match their insulin to their daily activities, rather than the other way around.
