Making the jump to insulin pumps

The idea of changing the way you give your insulin can be daunting. Switching from injections to a pump is a significant adjustment, so you will need to work with your diabetes team to evaluate your options and make a decision as to whether pump therapy is right for you. 
Insulin pump therapy is not just a health decision, it is a lifestyle choice. At Roche, our aim is to support you at every step of your journey with diabetes, helping you to live an unrestricted life – and our insulin pumps are designed to do just that.

What is an insulin pump?

An insulin pump is a small electronic device, about the size of a pack of cards, which is programmed to release small amounts of insulin throughout the day as needed. You can also easily give yourself extra doses of insulin to account for high blood glucose levels and carbohydrate intake.

Accu-Chek insulin pumps are two part systems which consist of the insulin pump itself and a remote control handset. The insulin pump holds a cartridge of insulin and is connected to the body by a small cannula and a thin tube. The handset can be used to discreetly control the pump, so you can deliver insulin without needing to get the pump out or to inject. It also incorporates the same clinically proven bolus advisor1-4 that you are used to with the Accu-Chek Aviva Expert, to make your transition to the insulin pump simpler.

The benefits you may experience

More flexibility:

  • Lead a more independent and flexible lifestyle without daily injections
  • Fewer injections – the cannula only needs to be changed every two or three days
  • Eat what you want, when you want5
  • Participate in sports whenever you feel like it
  • Go to bed early and sleep late in the morning without worrying5
  • You could have more energy, even in times of stress or an irregular work schedule6
  • Discreet diabetes management with the remote control handset

Better control:

  • More stable control with better HbA1c values and fewer episodes of hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose)7
  • Reduced risk of severe hypoglycaemia and ensuing complications 8-9
  • An insulin pump can deliver tiny amounts of insulin to benefit people with a very low insulin demand
  • Before, during and after pregnancy when the insulin demand can change significantly, the required amount can be easily adapted to individual needs with an insulin pump
