Insulin pump

An insulin pump is a portable device to inject insulin directly into the body without using a needle. About the size of a pager, it is programmed to inject insulin as needed by the person wearing it.

As it operates continuously, the pump allows you to:

  • Control unstable diabetes
  • Reduce frequency of hypoglycemia
  • Reduce frequency of insulin injections
  • Make eating schedule and organisation of daily activities more flexible
