An insulin pump is a small device, about the size of a cell phone, which delivers insulin into your body through a tiny catheter. With an insulin pump you can match your insulin to your lifestyle rather than adjusting your lifestyle to your body's response to insulin injections. Having a pump often replaces the need for daily insulin injections because it delivers insulin at a smaller steady rate, similar to how your pancreas would make insulin. The pump also has the ability to give you more flexibility in your meal plan and can reduce risk for blood sugar fluctuations
