Dispense Rapid-Acting Insulin for Most Patients With an Insulin Pump
More patients will make the switch from insulin injections to pumps.
Pumps can be a good option for some diabetes patients who inject insulin at least 3 times daily.
These devices may help limit swings in blood sugar...and offer more flexibility with dosing and meals. That's because pumps deliver a "basal" insulin rate continuously throughout the day...and "bolus" doses at mealtimes.
