About Diabetes Management Devices

Our insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors, and therapy management software allow you to track and manage your glucose levels all day, every day. Hundreds of thousands of people with our devices eat the foods they love and pursue activities they enjoy – with no injections, less worry, and fewer complications.

What Is It?

Insulin pumps are small, computerised devices that deliver insulin continuously to patients with diabetes. Continuous glucose monitors are also small, computerised devices that help you monitor what your glucose level is, where it is heading, and how fast it is heading there. Insulin pump continuous glucose monitor combinations combine both types of devices into one to help control your illness and protect your health.

Benefits and Risks

Diabetes management devices can deliver fast-acting insulin, can monitor your glucose levels continuously, or do both. These devices can help you control your glucose levels and protect your health. However, if you are using an insulin pump, and your infusion set comes out and you don’t get insulin for several hours, you could suffer life-threatening complications.
