It can be one of the biggest concerns for people with diabetes, especially during the night, when it is more difficult to recognise low levels of blood glucose (lows). It can disrupt your day to day activity and will always be a concern at the back of your mind, limiting your activities.
Achieving safe HbA1c levels while avoiding the risk of hypoglycaemia (hypos) or extremely low glucose levels is a challenge that the Insulin Pump Therapy has managed to tackle with great aplomb, giving you the freedom to live an unobstructed lifestyle and a clear mind.
Read the real-life stories of other people with diabetes and discover how they have found their way to better control and fewer hypos.
Mr Ashok Makhijani
said YES TO LIFE with his pump in 2013
“I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes 36 years ago. I was always taking insulin injections but still I had hypo episodes frequently. I had been in an out of the hospital 3-4 times and once even went into a coma. I loved food, and I often went out to family functions and parties with friends but after diabetes, my activities were very restricted. Even leaving for the office was a worry. There was a huge disturbance in my day to day activities. I used to enjoy the outdoors but once you have the stress of hypo, you don’t feel going out or doing anything because of the fear. I got the pump 4 months ago. After using the pump there has been a huge difference. My sugar levels are under control and I haven’t had a single hypo episode. I used to have a hypo episode 2-3 times a month, mostly at night, but now I feel free. I can freely go in and out to functions and meetings or take on any activities without hypo at the back of my mind.”
“ My sugar levels are normal so I feel more energetic.I haven’t had a single hypo episode. I feel free.”
