Have You Been Thinking About An Insulin Pump?

Is your blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride every single day? Do you feel unsure about what to do or how to bring your blood glucose levels down? Are you scared to go out and do things with friends or family because of the fear that diabetes brings you on a daily basis? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it is time to think about using an insulin pump to control your blood glucose levels. 

I have been wearing aninsulin pump for many years and am here to weigh in on why I feel it is a good option for type 1 diabetics. To some, this option may seem to be overly extreme or a last resort to an unsolvable problem. However, it shouldn’t be viewed this way. I am here to clear the air and answer a few questions about some of the common fears and concerns that scare people away from using an insulin pump.

Question: What makes an insulin pump a great option?

¬ An insulin pump can provide you with the convenience of being able to adjust yourself with insulin wherever you go and without the hassle of having to carry needles, a vial of insulin, etc. Instead, you can simply give yourself the exact amount of insulin you need at any moment.

Question: Is wearing an insulin pump uncomfortable?

¬ No, actually once you get in a routine of where you like to put your pump on your body, you hardly even know it is there. Plus, when you wear a pump you do not have to give yourself shots all the time, which are never comfortable.

Question: What are the benefits of an insulin pump?

¬ Fist of all, it gives you peace of mind that the insulin pump is on you at all times, along with a sense of independence and confidence about your diabetes control. This freedom allows you to not worry about your blood glucose levels or insulin when you go out with friends and family.

¬ By having an insulin pump you are able to set your hourly insulin rate (basal rates) to fit your individual needs, giving you a far greater ability to regulate blood glucose levels as a regular pancreas would.

¬ An insulin pump allows you to conveniently store basal rates and lets you track when you give yourself insulin making it easier to track your daily usage. Also, this information can be downloaded and given to your doctor in a hard copy format giving them an even better overall view of how you are doing.


Choosing to use an insulin pump is a major decision that needs to be discussed with your doctor, family, and yourself. It is not a decision that should be made on a whim because it impacts your health every single day. Hopefully, what I have shared has given you some things to think about. I wish everyone the best of luck with their type 1 diabetes.

Happy pumping!

Our story

Radrr was born out of our own experience with diabetes and insulin pumps. In 2008 my son (in the pic above) was diagnosed with diabetes type one at the age of 6. The challenges of living with this disease were made easier when our doctor recommended our switch to the insulin pump in late 2009. The insulin pump has made regulating the blood sugar much easier and less scary for our son than the previous twice daily shots. Today we are happy to report he is doing well. Although we love the pump, I was surprised to find that most of the accessories for living with it support the wrong image. Let me explain…

The accessories given to us by the manufacturer were all geared towards adults or very small children. The case choice was either leatherette belt clip models or industrial medical pouch on a Velcro strip—they are hardly the kind of things that kids want to use or be seen with. I immediately went to Google and searched for “insulin pump cases” and thought for sure that there would be something that my son would like. To my surprise, there wasn’t. I found that there was little choice, the quality of what was available was questionable, and there was little that made insulin pumps look “cool” or “fun” and at the same time provide high quality construction and functionality.

I started to think, why isn’t there something that is more fun? More cool? Dare we say even stylish? These kids have to go through a lot already–why should they also be embarrassed about their pumps! This is when we decided to do something about this situation, and Radrr was born.
