What is an Insulin Pump?
An insulin pump is a device about the size of a cell phone (or smaller) that contains a cartridge of rapid-acting insulin. It has a screen and buttons for programming the pump’s internal computer, and a precise motor that pushes the insulin from the cartridge into your body through a thin plastic tube called an infusion set.
Most pumps are so small and discreet that no one will know you're wearing one unless you want them to. Plus, there's a huge variety of accessories available to choose from.
Each insulin pump requires monthly supplies, including infusion sets (flexible tubing) and reservoirs (cartridges that hold insulin). We have these items in-stock, contact us for more information.

Some advantages of using an insulin pump instead of insulin injections include:
~ Elimination of individual insulin injections
~ More accurate insulin delivery than injections
~ Possible improvement of A1C
~ Fewer large swings in your blood glucose levels
~ Easier delivery of bolus insulin
~ Flexibility regarding when and what you eat
~ Reduction of severe low blood glucose episodes
