What is an insulin pump?

Share this:

An insulin pump can be worn by people living with diabetes. It’s a small device that mimics some of the ways a pancreas works. It delivers continuous and customized doses of rapid-acting insulin 24 hours a day to match your body’s needs. Learn more about how insulin pump therapy works, the benefits of pump therapy and who it is suitable for.

    While our insulin pumps do not require the use of sensors, our Guardian Link CGM is necessary to utilize SmartGuard features, like SmartGuard Auto Mode.

    No. Insulin pumps are typically worn around the clock to manage your glucose levels.

    Hi there, Nisha. This is a good conversation to have with a licensed healthcare provider. We cannot offer medical advice or a diagnosis.

    I chose not to choose the pump. im used to daily injection and doesn't bother me, and I don't want to worry about another device on my body with tubing

    M suffering from type 1 mellitus diabetes want this what the cost is???

  13. Lyn Johnson

    Do all pumps have a CGM? How does the pump know to give insulin without this wireless monitor?

  14. Enoque Rosa

    Excellent explanation. That is a great instrument for those who fear injecting themselves with insulin every time they want to go out with friends or do sports activities.

  15. Amrinder Dhaliwal

    Insulin is always stored in 2°-8° temperature and how can the insulin pump manage the temperature for insulin?

  18. Salah Asim

    I am 12 years old and I am diabetic. I have the insulin pump and sensor. I find it to be very useful and helpful.

    Hello Medtronic Diabetes. My name is Hannah and I am 12 years old and have diabetes. I have your 530G and the Enlite Sensor. I find it very useful. Thank you for your advanced technology so I can feel like a normal 12 year old.

    I wish there was a video that went through every step of changing the elite sensor. All the videos I’ve found only cover insertion. It would be great to see one that covers everything
    Timing of sensor change
    Any pump settings that need to be made before removal
    Best site location, orientation, etc.
    Everything else that we need to know

    I’m new to the sensor & Ive had so many questions. I wish there was a comprehensive video that covered everything. I am still unsure if I’m doing it all correctly even though I’ve changed my sensor twice.
