Using an insulin pump can help those with diabetes to live a more normal lifestyle without having to worry as much about when it will be time for their next insulin injection. Different insulin pump accessories can make this form of insulin delivery even simpler. In some cases, these accessories can even help make an insulin pump into a fashion statement.
The development of insulin pump therapy is in many cases a more convenient, innovative, and accurate means of delivering insulin into the bloodstream. A patient using this type of insulin therapy typically can maintain a steady level of insulin in the bloodstream, as well as have additional insulin ready when it becomes necessary. Insulin is delivered through a tiny cannula inserted under the skin. While the cannula must be replaced about once a month, this still means fewer needle sticks than traditional therapy, which often requires several injections every day.
