Discover Best-Selling Automatic Insulin Pumps
An insulin arm pump gives you the ability to control blood glucose levels with greater ease and convenience. Top-selling products, like the OmniPod Starter Kit - one of the best and most highly reviewed—make it easy for anyone to begin their diabetes self-management journey.
An insulin pump is a small, computerized device that helps deliver insulin through a thin tube that goes underneath the skin. The device releases insulin in a manner that mimics how your body would naturally release insulin: a steady flow throughout the day and the night, called basal insulin, and an extra dose at mealtime, called a bolus, to handle rising blood sugars from the food you eat.
If you want greater convenience and a device that will help you maintain and get the most out of your treatment plan, now’s the time to consider automatic insulin pumps from ADW Diabetes!
Frequently Asked Questions
What are automatic diabetic pumps?
Automatic insulin pumps mimic insulin release similar to your own pancreas to help keep your blood sugars in better control. Insulin pumps allow you to have fewer needle sticks. The pump infuses insulin under your skin and can make life more convenient.
There are two main types of insulin pumps for purchase. One is a patch pump which has no connective tubing. It allows you to attach the insulin pump directly onto your skin's surface - arm, leg, stomach, or buttocks, depending on your personal comfort. A patch pump is smaller since the remote control contains the controls as well as the blood glucose meter. It is without tubing, easier to keep in place, and waterproof. Our most popular insulin pump to buy is the Omnipod.
The other type of automatic insulin pump is a tethered pump, which has bendable tubing located between the actual pump and the cannula (the piece that goes directly into your skin). Tethered pumps have controls on the device that can be placed in a pouch, on your belt, or in a pocket. Brands of tethered pumps include Medtronic, Tandem, Roche, and Dana Diabecare.
There is no better pump, just the one you prefer. Talk with your healthcare provider about specific personal concerns. Please know that you will still need to monitor your blood sugars.
Can you sleep with an automatic insulin pump?
Yes, you can sleep with an insulin pump. It is trying to mimic your own body and provide insulin to you 24 hours a day, even while you sleep. Be sure it is securely in place to ensure the accuracy of your insulin delivery. Your tethered pump should have tubing long enough to prevent any problems. You can clip the pump to your pajamas or place it in a pocket on your night clothes. The buttons are not easily pressed accidentally, and some pumps actually have a lock feature to prevent a change in insulin amounts.
Is an insulin pump the best solution?
There are pros and cons to every medical device. Some find the insulin pump easier to use than taking several insulin shots a day. Some enjoy technology and what it offers. Others prefer an insulin patch which is typically easier to set up and use. Again, it is best to discuss all the options with your physician to determine which is the best decision for you.
