There are three types of diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes.
If you have Type 1 Diabetes, your body stops producing insulin or produces too little insulin to control your blood sugar levels.
The symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes are often dramatic and appear suddenly.
There is increasing interest in the use of insulin pumps, which are also known as continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy.
This medical device is an alternative to multiple daily injections of insulin by insulin syringe or an insulin pen.
A insulin pump is normally used by those individuals who require close monitoring of their blood glucose levels. This form of insulin delivery offers potential benefits over conventional insulin injection treatment.
The insulin pump is approximately the size of a pager and contains a micro computer and a reservoir of insulin in a syringe. This is pumped through a tiny tube inserted under the skin of the abdomen or buttocks in response to increased insulin needs.
