Insulin pumps are small computerized devices
that deliver insulin in two ways:
- In a steady measured and continuous dose
- As a surge dose, at your direction, around mealtime.
The insulin pump is not an artificial pancreas, but pumps can help some people achieve better control
. Pumps can be programmed to releases small doses of insulin continuously, or a bolus dose close to mealtime to control the rise in blood glucose after a meal. This delivery system most closely mimics the body's normal release of insulin
