2. Injections with a Pen or Pump

Developments in diabetic treatment technologies now offer Type 1 diabetes patients a welcome alternative to insulin injections with a syringe – the insulin pen and the insulin pump. The pen looks like a marker and comes with its own cartridge so there is no need to draw up insulin from a bottle into a syringe. The pump is a more sophisticated device that looks like a miniature computer. It delivers insulin through a tube attached to the person w a sticky patch. Many diabetics welcome the freedom from injections it offers and the way it helps maintain safe blood-sugar levels overnight.
