Insulin Pump Therapy Provides Better Glycemic Control Among Type 1 Diabetics, According to Kantar Health Research

The research was presented at the 18th Annual International Meeting for ISPOR (International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research) in New Orleans.

Patients with T1D who use insulin pump therapy reported significantly lower levels of HbA1C than patients who take multiple daily insulin injections. Nearly 40 percent of those using insulin pump therapy reported HbA1C levels of less than 7 percent, which is considered to be controlled, versus 24 percent of patients using insulin injections.

“Having consistently high HbA1C levels can increase the risk of developing microvascular and macrovascular complications, such as cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, blindness and neuropathy, among those with diabetes,” Gupta said. “Our research suggests that insulin pump therapy is associated with lower blood sugar levels and therefore
