Your doctor may prescribe an insulin pump to help you achieve good blood-sugar control. By using the small, lightweight device, you can avoid extreme changes in blood-sugar levels, with more flexibility in food choices and meal planning.
Insulin pumps are small and lightweight—about the size of a cell phone. They deliver insulin through a tiny tube inserted under the skin in the abdomen.
Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) constantly track a person’s glucose levels. While fingerstick tests only measure glucose levels at a point in time, continuous glucose monitors provide a 24-hour picture of glucose levels. CGMs are often used together with insulin pumps to provide a glucose monitoring and insulin delivery system.
The right care for your diabetes is critically important.
