At work I educate people who have diabetes and many of them use an insulin pump to deliver their insulin. During our conversations I always ask, “What are the features & benefits of your insulin pump?” Since starting on the pump some people felt their control had improved and they felt more relaxed. Another benefit mentioned was the move from multiple insulin injections and not having to stick themselves with a needle several times a day. Since starting with the pump, they now change their site every three days which reduces the number of shots per day from approximately 12 every three days to one injection. Each “insulin pumper” expressed the feeling of freedom, flexibility and confidence. An Insulin Pump can be a life altering change.
P.S. I wear an insulin pump too!
