Keep your diabetes under control
Insulin pumps can help you fit diabetes around your life and minimize the risk of long term complications. One of the main reasons why a person with diabetes will choose to have their insulin delivered through a pump is the recent development of methods by which the concurrent glucose levels can control insulin delivery – reacting to prevent hypoglycaemia and to limit glucose rises. The London Diabetes Centre offers the latest cutting-edge pumps from Medtronic, Omnipod, Tandem, Ypsomed, Accuchek, Dana and Medtrum alongside a tailored training programme and the support you need to get your diabetes under control.
An insulin pump is a battery operated device that delivers small amounts of insulin into the bloodstream twenty-four hours a day. The insulin dose can be modified to match your body’s needs, offering more flexibility around meals, fewer hypos and more stable blood glucose levels.
The pump is attached to the body by a tiny tube, called a cannula. It is inserted just under the skin and needs to be changed regularly. The pump delivers a steady background or basal level of insulin, you can add more, as a bolus, at mealtimes using the device.
The right insulin pump can allow you to take control of your diabetes and live life to the full. NHS restrictions mean that many people in the UK are unable to get a pump, or may be offered a device that doesn’t best meet their needs. The London Diabetes Centre provides expert assessment, a wide-range of the most up-to-date pumps and the education needed to ensure you can use the pump properly.
