Diabetic Insulin Pump Information

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you may be searching for information on how to take insulin. One of the insulin-delivery methods involves using an insulin pump, which is a device programmed to deliver tiny amounts of insulin continuously throughout the day. The insulin is delivered to the body through a tube inserted in the skin. Although the pump eliminates the need for insulin injections, you still need to check your blood sugar often.
 
Most people who use an insulin pump have type 1 diabetes, although certain people with type 2 diabetes who take insulin may also use one. In order to determine if the pump is right for you, your healthcare provider needs information on your complete medical history, including any problems you may have with your kidneys, liver, vision, or hearing.
