OF YOUR TYPE 2 DIABETES
Now clinically proven with MiniMed® insulin pump treatment
Insulin pump treatment provides better control for your Type 2 diabetes. What are the advantages of MiniMed pump therapy over daily injections?
You can improve your control of Type 2 diabetes with MiniMed insulin pump therapy1
Results of a study1 comparing insulin pump therapy to multiple daily injection (MDI) show that after 6 months of treatment:
1.1% HbA1c drop versus a 0.4% in the group on MDI
Total day insulin dose 20.4% lower compared with MDI
No significant difference in body weight
No ketoacidosis event
The Hb1Ac reduction that you can achieve by using the MiniMed pump can signiﬁcantly reduce the risk for long-term complications2,3 such as:
Eye damage (retinopathy)
Nerve damage (neuropathy)
People like John and Janis have switched from multiple daily injections (MDI) to MiniMed pump therapy
The MiniMed pump is an external device about the size of a small mobile phone that you can easily carry on a belt, place inside a pocket or wear under your clothes. The pump delivers insulin in a continuous and precise flow through a thin, flexible tube called an infusion set. The end of this tube sits comfortably under the skin and is replaced every two to three days.
You can easily disconnect and reconnect the pump from your body whenever you want to. This can be helpful, for example when you want to swim, shower or you want intimacy.
