Health Tip: The Pluses of Using an Insulin Pump

How diabetics may benefit

(HealthDay News) -- An insulin pump delivers insulin directly, without messing with syringes and bottles of insulin.

The American Diabetes Association mentions these likely benefits:
  • No more single injections of insulin.
  • More accurate dosing and delivery of insulin.
  • More stable blood sugar, including fewer severe lows.
  • Greater flexibility in when and what you eat.
  • No unpredictable reactions to long-acting or intermediate-acting insulin.
