People who use more than one type of insulin to manage diabetes are often unable to keep their blood sugars within target ranges without large swings in their blood sugar. Insulin pump therapy can offer greater control over your insulin delivery and blood sugar results.
Am I a Candidate for an Insulin Pump?
You may be able to use an insulin pump, if you:
- Use insulin
- Can test your blood sugar four to eight times daily
- Are willing to learn to adjust the insulin dose
