A Boon for the Diabetic

Diabetics are no longer concerned with scheduling activities around peaking insulin levels since the use of an external pump from Pacesetter Systems, Inc. used to deliver insulin continuously at a preprogrammed individually adjusted rate. The pump wearer can lead a more normal existence, even participate in sports or travel, and there is an even greater benefit. Research indicates that infusion of short acting" insulin in tiny amounts over a long period - instead of "long-acting" insulin has helped many diabetics achieve better control of blood sugar levels thereby minimizing the possibility of complications and in some cases even halting the progression of complications.
