British School Kids With Diabetes Gain First Time Freedom From Injections With New Insulin Pump Guidelines
Date:8/31/2008

ries in terms of diabetes management with less than 1% of Type 1 cases using an insulin pump in the UK, compared to many other countries such as US and Germany where 15-20% use a pump(iv). With a five fold increase in the number of under fives diagnosed over the past 20 years(v), and 1 child in 1,000(vi) affected, access to insulin pump therapy is essential for children to have the opportunity to live as close to a normal a life as possible and feel less 'controlled' by their diabetes as Dr Barnard's adolescent study amongst pump users found.

Dr Barnard continued: "The new guidance should hopefully open up access to children and their families and pumps are then provided according to need, choice and suitability."

Insulin pumps are not suitable for everyone and they need thorough explanation and training. People can find out more by visiting http://www.accu-chek.co.uk where they can experience the Accu-Chek Spirit online simulator, the most advanced insulin pump from Roche which closely mimics the pancreas by delivering insulin every three minutes(vii).
