The Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Endocrinology continues the implementation of insulin pump therapy of diabetes in children.
Diabetes is a way of life, and in recent years new technologies have been appearing allowing to live normally. This is indicated on numerous events taking place in the country these days within the month timed to the World Diabetes Day. Introducer of these technologies in the practice of the country is the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Endocrinology.
For the second year the Center deals with implementation in the country of the pump therapy of diabetes. More than 200 children from the state budget have been provided with special devices that help them to maintain blood sugar level.
“Insulin pump therapy is recommended for children’s diabetes, as teaches children self-control and facilitate their injection administration,” said Director of the Center, Said Ismailov.
In most cases, insulin pump used in type 1 diabetes and it helps to more effectively imitate the normal concentration of hormone in the blood and maintain blood sugar at normal rates. This type of insulin therapy is considered one of the most effective to date. With this method of treatment, the patient with diabetes more accurately administers the necessary dose of insulin and, if necessary, can even safely make frequent injections (for example, every 14 minutes). When using an insulin pump, in most cases, the patient reduces the dose of insulin, of course only when he/she is treated properly and carefully monitors sugar control.
