What is an insulin pump?
Insulin pumps are devices that connect an external pump to a tube and fine needle or cannula that is inserted just below the skin. The pumps are programmed to inject fast-acting insulin into type 1 diabetics to mimic the function of a healthy pancreas.
Diabetes Australia advises that insulin pumps aren’t suited to everyone. Anyone considering an insulin pump will need to speak to their doctor about their diabetes treatment options.
