Abstract

Tight glucose control has been shown to reduce both microvascular and macrovascular complications in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Insulin pump therapy has been shown to be safe and effective in helping patients achieve good glycemic control. However, successful insulin pump therapy is dependent on each patient's ability and motivation to learn to use insulin pumps correctly; comprehensive initial and ongoing education delivered by qualified clinicians is the key. In addition, patients must have strong, ongoing support from an experienced health care team as they learn to use more advanced insulin pump strategies. Insulin pump therapy is not as complicated as many believe; however, clinicians must be willing to acquire the knowledge and training necessary to safely and effectively use this important tool to manage diabetes in nonspecialty practices.
