What insulin pump do you or your child use?

Poll dates: February 1 - 8, 2004
Total Votes: 677

With many studies now showing that insulin pump therapy results in better control and less risk of hypoglycemia than traditional therapy, more and more kids are using pumps. That's the good news. Even better news is that there are many pumps to choose from today, so it's easier than ever to find a pump that matches your needs.

If you're considering insulin pump therapy, you should talk with your diabetes team about the various pumps that are available. You should also contact each pump company and request information about their pumps, and ask what kind of assistance they can provide with your insurance company.
