Updated information on COVID-19 and Flu: Restricted visitation is now in effect

The insulin pump is a small battery-operated device, about the size of an average pager, that delivers a constant amount of short-acting insulin and takes the place of standard syringe therapy.

Insulin pumps are programmable to allow very flexible, accurate dosing patterns. They are excellent tools to help control blood sugar with maximum freedom for changes in daily schedules and eating patterns.

Pumps are very user friendly, but not automatic. The user is still responsible for determining how many carbohydrates are eaten.

If you are interested in insulin pump therapy for your child, schedule an appointment with the Sparrow Pediatric Endocrinology Team at 517.364.5490.
