Best Control

     

Pump therapy is not all alike.

 

People with diabetes choose pump therapy over multiple daily injections for many reasons. It’s more convenient. There are no schedules. And there are no injections. But the main advantage of insulin pumps is the reduced instance of highs and lows. That means better control—and less risk of diabetic complications, now and in the future.

 

And that is where the OmniPod System shines.

 

A prospective, open-label study, published in Diabetes Care, measured the impact of short-term infusion set disconnects on glucose levels. The unequivocal conclusion: A “30-minute interruption of basal insulin infusion resulted in significant glucose elevation; ~1 mg/dL for each minute basal insulin infusion was interrupted.” 1

 

Because the Pod is applied directly to your body, you don’t have to take it off to shower, play sports or be intimate. So unlike traditional insulin pumps, insulin deliver is truly continuous.

 

 

Even short-term interruption of insulin delivery can cause blood glucose levels to rise and remain elevated for hours post-interruption.
