Why choose insulin pump therapy?

A more flexible lifestyle

Boy climbs up a climbing wall supported by his dadMultiple Daily Injection therapy (MDI) requires a major commitment. Injecting insulin several times a day needs to be carefully planned and incorporated into your daily routine. It is also more difficult to tune the insulin basal rate to accommodate unexpected challenges in everyday life.

Life with a portable insulin pump is much simpler and more convenient. The pump can be worn discreetly on the body, for example on a belt or in a pocket. It has an infusion set with a cannula that is inserted into subcutaneous tissue. The pump then delivers a continuous and adjustable dose of regular insulin or fast-acting insulin analog. Before meals, just press a button to deliver a supplemental dose (bolus).

There is no longer any need to administer multiple injections every day. This makes you more independent and flexible in how you lead your life.

An insulin pump can help you avoid the rigid regimen and lack of flexibility that used to be associated with diabetes, while tailoring your insulin doses to your needs.

You still have to watch how you eat and exercise – but the use of an insulin pump lets you do things more spontaneously, easily and free of hassles and stress.

An insulin pump makes it easy for you to effectively handle everyday situations such as eating meals at different times, irregular work schedules, varying activity levels and changes in blood glucose levels caused by health issues, hormonal swings or medications.

More and more people with diabetes are deciding to switch from multiple daily injections to an insulin pump and reap the benefits this therapy can offer.
