A bit about insulin pump therapy
An insulin pump is a device that delivers insulin in place of multiple daily injections.
A continuous amount of short acting insulin is delivered 24 hours a day through a cannula placed under the skin. This is known as basal insulin, but it’s sometimes called background insulin.
Additional insulin is delivered for meals and blood glucose corrections - these are known as bolus doses.
I think pump choice is really important for anyone…
Podder® since 2018
Omnipod was designed to simplify life with diabetes. From parents struggling to manage their child’s insulin needs, to adults who’ve written off pumps altogether, Omnipod can simplify life with up to 3 days (up to 72 hours) of continuous, tubeless insulin delivery with no need for multiple daily injections.
- Discreet. The Pod is small enough to be worn under clothing with no tubing.
- Convenient. Deliver your bolus insulin easily using the wireless controller / Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM).
- Mealtime calculator. The in-built Bolus Calculator helps to simplify mealtime math.
- Waterproof*. The Pod can be worn while swimming, bathing or showering.
We have two systems - our trusted Omnipod DASH® and our new automated insulin delivery (AID) system Omnipod® 5, which integrates with the Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor.
