Title: Insulin Pump Therapy In Patients With Type 1 Diabetes [uso De Bomba De Infusão Subcutânea De Insulina E Suas Indicações]
Author: Minicucci W.J.
Abstract: Both Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSI) and Multiple Daily Injections (MDI) are effective ways of implementing intensive management of DM1 to attain near normal glycemic levels and a more flexible lifestyle. CSI is as safe as MDI and has some advantages over it mostly in diabetic patients with frequent hypoglycemias with important dawn phenomenum, gastroparesia, during pregnancy, in children and in patients with an erratic way of living. CSI allows a better chance to reach better glycemic control with less hypoglycemia, asymptomatic hypoglycemias and a better quality of life. Besides, risks are lower and adverse events are less frequent in DM1 patients under CSI as compared to MDI. To obtain results like this, a careful adjustment of basal and boluses insulin doses and an adequate patient follow-up are essential. Copyright© ABE&M.
