What is an insulin pump? Which patients are suitable for insulin pump?

  insulin pump is a micro-computer power unit, built insulin. It is composed of the insulin pump container, the medicine reservoir, a small battery-driven pump, and a computer chip. The chip is used for patients to accurately control the dose of insulin released by the pump. The insulin in the pump is connected to a small needle through a thin soft plastic tube. The small needle is pierced under the skin. A small dose of insulin (basic amount) is continuously infused into the patient’s body for 24 hours. A large dose of insulin is infused when eating (before meals). Large doses), make the blood sugar in the body continue to be in a normal state without drastic fluctuations up and down. Therefore, insulin is like a simple “artificial pancreas”, also called “continuous subcutaneous insulin injection”. The following patients are suitable for insulin pump:
  1. Patients who need short-term insulin pump therapy
  (1) Newly diagnosed or diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients who need short-term intensive insulin therapy.
  (2) Type 2 diabetes patients with stress state.
  (3) Pre-pregnancy preparation for patients with gestational diabetes, diabetes complicated with pregnancy, and diabetes.
  (4) Perioperative blood glucose control in diabetic patients.
  2. Patients need long-term insulin pump therapy
  patients require long-term insulin therapy can take insulin pump therapy, the following people benefit more from the use of insulin pump:
  (1) type 1 diabetes.
  (2) Patients with type 2 diabetes who need long-term insulin therapy, especially those with large blood glucose fluctuations, and those whose blood glucose cannot be controlled steadily despite the use of multiple subcutaneous insulin injections; those whose “dawn phenomenon” severely leads to poor overall blood glucose control; People with hypoglycemia, especially nighttime hypoglycemia, undetected hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia; irregular work and rest schedules and unable to eat meals on time; unwilling to receive multiple injections of insulin daily, requiring improved quality of life; gastroparesis or Patients who have been eating for a long time.
  (3) Other types of diabetes requiring long-term insulin replacement therapy.
