Insulin pumps can help you fit diabetes around your life and minimise the risk of long term complications.
You may be considering moving to insulin pump therapy because you've heard about the recent developments in hybrid closed loop systems otherwise known as an artificial pancreas. In these systems the insulin pump automatically adjusts your insulin delivery according to information it receives from a continuous glucose sensor which you wear continuously – reacting to prevent hypoglycaemia and limiting rises in your blood glucose.
The London Diabetes Centre offers the latest cutting-edge insulin pumps from Medtronic, Omnipod, Tandem and Ypsomed alongside a tailored training programme giving you the support you need to get your diabetes under control.
What is an insulin pump?
- A small device that provides insulin 24 hours a day
- Attached to a cannula and inserted into the skin
- Changed every 2–3 days
- Automatically adjusts your insulin dose for flexibility and freedom
An insulin pump is a battery-operated or rechargeable 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 (hypoglycaemic episodes) and more stable blood glucose levels.
The insulin 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 every 2-3 days. The insulin pump uses only quick acting soluble insulin and delivers a steady background or basal level of insulin. However, you will need to deliver additional insulin for meals using the insulin pump.

What types of insulin pump are available?
We’re proud to provide rapid access a comprehensive range of the latest pump technology at The London Diabetes Centre.
Pumps vary in battery life, screen size, features and type, but there are broadly two types of pumps:
Tubed insulin pumps are attached to your body by thin tubing that carries the insulin from the pump to the cannula inserted under the skin. The pump is carried in a body pouch, belt, clipped onto clothes or placed in your pocket. The London Diabetes Centre offers high-tech pumps which feature smartphone apps. The cannula and the location of the pump should be changed every two to three days to prevent itching, rashes and skin changes and ensure effective insulin delivery.
Patch insulin pumps attach directly to the skin with the canula concealed under the device, the pod or pump contains a reservoir of insulin, They’re operated by remote control. The whole pod/patch has to be changed every two to three days. The only one available is the Omnipod and the hybrid closed loop Omnipod 5 is expected here later this year.
Customised diabetes care and training from our expert diabetes team who will help you choose the pump that best meets your needs and lifestyle.
Pumps can be used by adults and children. They are especially useful if you give multiple daily doses of insulin and still struggle to control your highs and lows. It’s important that you understand how to count the carbs in your diet and adjust your insulin around eating and activity. However, our clinic's experienced dieticians and diabetes specialist nurses will guide and support you every step of the way.
