Implantable insulin pumps cut hypoglycaemic events and improve quality of life for diabetic patients who would otherwise inject their insulin, says a group of US researchers from the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. The findings come from the first large-scale, prospective, randomised trial of insulin pumps in type-II diabetics. The study also showed that patients with pumps avoided weight gain and had less day-to-day variability in their blood sugar.
