    Insulin Pump Directory

    Insulin pumps are devices that are worn on the belt or carried in a pocket and have a small needle that is placed under the skin. The pump slowly releases insulin into the body. The amount of insulin released can be changed as needed. Some doctors and patients prefer the insulin pump to daily shots.
