The DMS educators can help you decide if pump therapy is right for you and help take the fear out of using an insulin pump.
They can also provide insulin pump training on all major insulin pumps. In collaboration with healthcare providers, the educators can also help pumpers improve their control by helping them fine tune pump settings and problem solve fluctuations in blood glucose as well as other pump and infusion site issues.
In addition to pump therapy, our educators can also teach people with diabetes how to use a continuous glucose monitor (CGM). The CGM reads out blood glucose data every 1 to 5 minutes and shows whether a person’s glucose if rising or falling. Combining CGM with pump therapy can provide a method to monitor and manage blood glucose levels. The information obtained can also help to fine-tune the pump settings.
