Healthy Life: New Device for Diabetics

BACKGROUND: Type 1 diabetes affects children because their pancreas does not produce insulin. It used to be known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes. Children with diabetes receive injections, learn to count carbohydrates and monitor blood sugar.

CAUSES: Most people with type 1 diabetes have it as result of the body's immune system in which it mistakenly destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

SYMPTOMS: Symptoms can include: extreme hunger, weight loss, fatigue, irratibility or unusual behavior, blurred vision or yeast infection.

TREATMENT: The tubeless insulin pump known as the OmniPod is a new device that was created to hold and deliver insulin as an alternative to injections. It comes with a PDM, a personal diabetes monitor, that wirelessly programs a personalized insulin delivery, calculates suggested doses, and has a built in blood glucose meter.
The OmniPod is waterproof, therefore users are able to swim and bathe with it on. The PDM does not need to be near the OmniPod all the time, only when programming insulin delivery, or to respond to Pod alarms or alerts.
Insulin is filled into the Pod using a fill syringe that comes with the Pod.

ADVANTAGES: The OmniPod is continuous because it eliminates daily injections and reduces highs and lows of insulin levels, therefore decreasing diabetic complications.
