General Questions

Can I disconnect from my insulin pump temporarily?

Because Accu-Chek insulin pumps can be disconnected at the infusion site you can remove the pump temporarily (for up to an hour) to bathe, go swimming or take part in contact sports.

Always remember to check your blood glucose and correct as needed before disconnecting your insulin pump and again when you reconnect. If you are intending to be disconnected from your pump for longer than an hour, you should check your blood glucose regularly throughout the time you are disconnected, reconnecting and correcting as necessary.

You should discuss your personal requirements for disconnecting from your insulin pump with your healthcare professional before going ahead.
