Being diagnosed with diabetes, no longer means giving up an active life. New technology, such as and continuous glucose monitors, can help people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes stay active and flexible and maintain healthy attitudes and lifestyles.

to mimic the action of the pancreas, insulin pumps are , pager-sized devices that infuse insulin under the skin based on programmed rates. Not only does this eliminate the need for injections, it also allows for amounts of insulin to to be released throughout the day, and large amounts to be administered at meals based on what’s being eaten. When paired with a continuous glucose monitor, which provides a continuous readout of glucose levels, users can enjoy accurate, tight glucose control that provides much greater flexibility and freedom than the old check-and-inject method.

Dr. Francine Kaufman’s Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose explains the advances in glucose management, and thoroughly discusses the technology, as well as the physical and psychological aspects of diabetes care. It provides a comprehensive medical approach toward diabetes management and pump therapy with an appreciation of the real-life challenges and frustrations faced every day by people with diabetes.

Pumps and Monitoring I got this book on time and it was enjoyable to read. I have been a type 1 diabetic for close to 40 years and it was not only a GREAT review but inspirational. This book is brand new… and up to date. I realize now why I need to follow the guidelines so precisely to get good results. I only just got a continuous glucose monitor in October and I did not have a doctor at the time who even took patients with insulin pumps let alone CGM’s I am very happy I read this book and will use it for…

Great info for beginners! This is a great book for those just starting out on a pump. Your ENDO doc can only cover so much – so having a reference is important! Things come up, like what to do when you get sick, how to handle changing your basal settings and so much more. This book is excellent and I refer to it often.

Extremely helpful Written very well and explains in language that is understandable. Bought it for my daughter who has been a type 1 diabetic for 33 years and a pump user for 10. Just Added the constant glucose monitoring. It’s been a godsend!
