    Research conducted at 30 centres across North America, including Toronto General Hospital, found a significant decrease in average blood sugar levels (or A1c levels, which measure the average blood sugar levels over the past two or three months) from a baseline of 8.3 percent to 7.5 percent in the group using sensors and insulin pumps, compared to 8.3 percent to 8.1 percent in the multiple daily injection group, in one year.

The decrease in A1c levels in both adults and children occurred without an increase in the rate of severe hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, a common problem among patients who are trying to achieve better control of their blood sugar. Symptoms include shakiness, rapid heart beat, confusion and even unconsciousness.

    Washington, June 30 : Using sensors and insulin pump instead of multiple daily insulin injections could bring down average blood sugar levels in diabetics, according to a study.

    continuous glucose sensors and insulin pump

    A new study published today in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) shows that certain sensors on insulin pumps can significantly decrease hypoglycemic episodes in those with type 1 . The sensors in question detect when blood sugar falls below a certain level, then cuts off insulin delivery.

What Is an Insulin Pump? | Medtronic Diabetes Canada

How does it work? The MiniMed 530G System includes several components: glucose sensor and insulin pump (both externally worn), transmitter, glucose meter, and therapy management software. The glucose sensor is inserted through the skin on the abdomen and measures glucose values in the . The glucose values are sent through the transmitter to the insulin pump where they are displayed for the user. In addition to receiving glucose values, the insulin pump delivers insulin to the user through use of an insulin infusion set that is inserted under the skin. The system can be programmed by the user to automatically stop insulin delivery if the sensor detects a glucose level below a predefined threshold.
