Diabetes - Pregnancy

Insulin pumps for rent!

 

Helping pregnant women with diabetes

 
 
The programme was launched in 2004. It aims to help ensure that women with diabetes can have a safe, healthy pregnancy and give birth to healthy children despite their illness. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has purchased state-of-the-art equipment, 1,892 modern personal insulin pumps available for rent at 38 medical facilities nationwide. 
 
 
 


Insulin pump treatment eliminates the need for numerous injections, which are necessary to balance blood sugar levels throughout the day. Instead, an insulin pump delivers insulin steadily, keeping the blood sugar levels under constant management. The equipment is available through clinics, and the personnel has been trained to monitor the treatment of pregnant women who have diabetes to enjoy healthy, stress-free pregnancies. 

Since 2004 to September 2022, these pumps have been rented by 5,453 women, putting Poland in the lead when treating pregnant women with diabetes using personal insulin pumps. Medical records show that 2,580 healthy babies were born thanks to successful insulin treatment!

The winner of the auction was Paweł Orepuk, bidding PLN 10,099.
