First Apollo insulin pump clinic opened in Chennai!

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 12 Sep,2013

With the launch of the clinic, Apollo Hospitals will counsel adult patients with diabetes regarding the pros and cons of using an Insulin Pump (CSII). They will also prescribe insulin pumps on a trial basis so that patients can try them before making a final decision.

An insulin pump is a small device that is worn externally and can be discreetly clipped to your belt, slipped into a pocket, or hidden under your clothes. It delivers precise doses of rapid-acting insulin to closely match your body’s needs. An insulin pump is a different method of insulin delivery for people with diabetes and can replace the conventional multiple insulin injection regimen.

The pump also allows the patient to give insulin “on demand” when they eat. The advantage of using a pump to deliver insulin is that doses may be finely titrated.
