How Can Medtronic Products Help My Child?
It is likely that you and your child regularly seek information that will help you best manage his or her diabetes. While many options are available to children with diabetes, the Medtronic insulin pumps deliver precise, timely insulin doses 24/7, like a healthy pancreas delivers basal and bolus insulin.
What is an Insulin Pump?
Like a pancreas, an insulin pump continuously delivers tiny doses of insulin to your child's body, and it replaces the need to give routine injections insulin with syringes or pens. Insulin pumps are not implanted in your child's body. They are small enough to fit in a pocket or on your child's waistband.
