Insulin Pump Program

The Diabetes-Endocrinology Center of WNY has the largest insulin pump program in the Buffalo-Niagara area, with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics on pumps. Clients come from all walks of life and range in age from young school-age children to retirees in their 80s.

The center works with all pumps and continuous glucose monitoring systems.

Insulin pump therapy has some big advantages over traditional injections but may not be for everyone. Therefore, potential pump patients are carefully screened and trained in basic nutrition and accurate carbohydrate counting before starting on the pump.

Pump training is generally done in two, three-hour sessions, with the first being a saline trial. Patients already on a pump who are upgrading to a new model usually require only one training session. All pump training is done at 705 Maple Road in Williamsville by nurse educators who are also certified pump trainers. Frequent follow-up appointments are required for brand new pumpers. Once stable, a pump patient is expected to follow up with the doctor every three months.

If a patient is thinking about going on an insulin pump, there are some things to consider:

  1. It requires education including nutrition or diet education and meal planning.
  2. Back-up equipment, such as syringes or pens is still necessary.
  3. Blood glucose still has to be checked at least four times each day.
  4. Pumps and supplies are expensive, but most insurance companies pay approximately 80 percent of the cost.
  5. It takes patience at first, but it's worth it.

Certified Diabetic Educators and Registered Dietitian available.
