What is Insulin Pump Therapy?
An insulin pump is a small device that mimics the function of your pancreas by providing continuous, customized doses of insulin based on your body’s needs. Insulin pump therapy not only means 90% fewer injections*, but allows for mealtime dosing, more stable blood sugar levels, and accurate insulin delivery!
