Discover Insulin Pump Therapy in 3 Steps

 

Step 1 - See what our customers have to say about using an insulin pump

Charlie's Story

Charlie describes himself as ‘very special’ because he has a pump, which is ‘much better than injections’

Karen's Story

Karen loves the technological features of Accu-Chek Combo; daily uploading and analysing her data. She likes the fact that the pump element of the combo is completely unobtrusive. It’s ‘absolutely fantastic’, she says.

Harry's Story

Teenager and keen golfer Harry says he can ‘live life as normal’ now, thanks to Accu-Chek Combo. He has ‘never felt so well’ and his parents give him more freedom.

Rashid's Story

Rashid, the father of young children, it is all about confidence. 'I’ve got my life back' he says

Andy's Story

Andy used to inject four times per day. His great passion is cycle racing and before starting on the Combo he had to keep stopping to check his blood sugar levels. Now he can cycle uninterrupted.

Daniel's Story

Eight year old Daniel says his football career is going from strength to strength as his parents control his insulin levels remotely.

Huw's Story

Huw reports a radical reduction in his stress levels since taking up the offer of a pump some 18 months ago. Fewer complications because of better blood glucose control will mean he will be around longer for his children, he says.

Meinir's story

Meinir, a small-holder and teacher in Wales has seen her HbA1c level drop from 10 to 7.8 in a matter of weeks thanks to Combo.

Step 2 - Get a quick overview of what a diabetes insulin pump is

An insulin pump is an alternative to multiple daily injections. Instead of injecting insulin by syringe or with an insulin pen, insulin is delivered in small doses by a pump.

Normally an insulin pump will include:

  • The insulin pump itself, a medical device designed to deliver insulin safely, discreetly and accurately.

  • A clear disposable container inside the pump for insulin.

  • A disposable thin tubing known as an 'infusion set'. The infusion set includes a small needle to allow delivery of insulin into the body which is called a 'cannula'. The infusion set is connected to the insulin container in the insulin pump.

  • The Accu-Chek® Insight insulin pump system includes a Remote Control Bluetooth® Handset. This handset allows on-board therapy management, with options to control insulin delivery and data management tools for analysing results on-the-go.
