Sleeping with an Insulin Pump.

Keeping your blood sugar levels in control, even while you sleep.

One of the advantages of insulin pump therapy is that the pump continuously delivers insulin to help keep your blood sugar levels in control, even while you sleep.

Avoid dawn phenomenon.

Not only can you be in control late into the night, you can also avoid “dawn phenomenon” in the early morning hours when your glucose levels can rise. All you need to do is program your insulin pump for different times of day to accommodate your body’s ever-changing needs. Now you don’t just have to dream about tight control – you can actually take control.

Where do I put my pump?

Pumpers tell us that they don’t even notice their pump while they sleep. They clip it to their pyjamas, place it in a pocket, tuck it under their pillow or keep it next to them in bed.
