Your primary goal to successfully managing your diabetes, is getting your blood glucose levels within your defined range. Making good decisions and balancing your normal day-to-day activities is necessary to reduce diabetes complications. Using an insulin pump helps you manage your insulin levels while reducing the number of injections needed throughout the day.

Insulin pumps are small devices made to mimic the pancreas by delivering rapid insulin through a catheter placed under the skin. Through your insulin pump, basal insulin is delivered continuously keeping your blood glucose levels in range during the day. During meals, it is common for you or your insulin pump to give an extra dose of insulin, known as a bolus. This is done to cover the carbohydrate in each meal or snack.

If you have high blood glucose levels, you can treat this by taking an additional bolus to correct your levels.
