Insulin pumps are also called CSII...continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion.
There is increasing evidence that these will produce even better diabetic control than the most modern multiple dose injection regime.
New pumps are available
- some come with a glucose sensor
- The meditronic 670 has a sensor that adjuts the insulin rate, though you still have to tell it how much you are going to eat.
- 33% of type 1 patients attending the QE hospital in Birmingham are pump users.
