What an Insulin Pump Won't Do

​​

An insulin pump doesn’t:

  • work as an artificial pancreas
  • automatically protect you from high or low blood sugars
  • give insulin automatically when you eat or when your blood sugar is high
  • take away the need to check your blood sugar

  • To get a better understanding of what the pump does and doesn’t do, please read ​Section 10: A Day in the Life of a Pumper​​.​​​
