"Any of us who work in diabetes care feel strongly that insulin pump therapy is the best available treatment for selected people with diabetes who use insulin. It provides better quality of life (compared to injections), along with better blood sugar control with less hypoglycemia. It can be fine-tuned to work for each individual user. I would encourage you to discuss this therapy with your healthcare team to see if it would be right for you. From my personal experience, both as an endocrinologist and as someone with type 1 diabetes, those of you who choose this technology will not be disappointed. More importantly, you will never look back."
