    Entering numbers in the pump is much easier for me than the daily injections.

    It means a lot to have less things I need to carry with me for my diabetes.

    If I make any mistakes with carb counting, this system gets me back down to my target range very quickly.

    Questions for your Doctor

    Can I try this before I commit to it?

    A lot of provider offices have sample devices you can touch and feel to get a sense of how they work. Some offices even have a trial device you can use for week to see how it works for you.

    How does a smart system work?

    Automated insulin delivery systems usually have three parts: a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), an insulin pump, and an algorithm, which is the brain. It makes many dosing decisions for you with less button pushing. The system senses your blood sugar level and adjusts insulin delivery automatically.
