What is an Insulin Pump?

An insulin pump is a small computerized device used to give a patient a constant drip of insulin. It delivers insulin through a thin tube that goes under the skin. The pump is about the size of a smartphone. It is attached to the body using an infusion set: thin plastic tubing and either a needle or a small tapered tube called a cannula put under the skin.


An insulin pump mimics what a normal pancreas would do and is programmed to meet each patients individual needs.

How Does an Insulin Pump Work?

The device releases insulin almost the way your body naturally would: a steady flow throughout the day and night, called basal insulin, and an extra dose at mealtime, called a bolus, to handle rising blood sugar from the food you eat.


You program the pump for both basal and bolus doses. If you eat more than normal, you can program a larger bolus to cover the carbs in your food. A bolus can bring down high blood sugar at other times, too.

Advantages of Using an Insulin Pump
  • Requires fewer needle sticks. A pump requires one shot every few days when you change your infusion set.
  • A pump is more accurate than shots, helping better manage blood sugar levels.
  • Patients experience fewer blood sugar lows, which is important if they often have hypoglycemia.
  • It may improve A1c levels.
  • Dosing for meals and snacks is easier.
  • It’s easier to plan for exercise.
  • It’s easier to bolus.
  • It helps manage early morning high blood sugar, also called the “dawn phenomenon.”
