Advanced Treatment Options

Insulin Pump Therapy

An insulin pump continuously delivers fast-acting insulin in the fat tissue beneath the skin. People with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes may use an insulin pump. The insulin is delivered through a small tube under the skin.

Benefits of pumping insulin:

  • Delivers insulin to mimic the human pancreas as closely as possible
  • The background insulin delivery rate can be adjusted throughout the day
  • Fewer pokes through the skin
  • Flexible dosing for differing lifestyles

Drawbacks of pumping insulin:

  • Pump is attached to you nearly all the time
  • If insulin delivery stops, you may become very ill
  • It takes time and patience to learn how to effectively use pump
  • Pumping can be expensive

Continuous Glucose Monitors

Continuous glucose monitors (sensors) detect the sugar in the fluid between your body cells (interstitial fluid) instead of in the blood. Sugar is detected continuously and reported to the receiver frequently. The main benefit of using a sensor is that it tells your current reading as well as if sugar is going up or down and how fast. If you know the direction of your sugar, you can take action to prevent a low or severe high.

The sugar reading is sent to a receiver. Some sensors use an insulin pump as the receiver while other sensors come with a separate receiver. You don't have to use an insulin pump to use a sensor, but if you use a sensor, you still must check your blood sugar by finger-stick for any decisions about your insulin dose, if you feel low, and to calibrate the sensor.
