Nationwide Programme for Personal Insulin Treatment for Pregnant Women with Diabetes
Insulin pump treatment eliminates the need for numerous injections, which are necessary to balance blood sugar levels throughout the day. 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 suffering from diabetes so that they can enjoy healthy, stress-free pregnancy.
In the years 2004 - 2017 these pumps have been used by 3 403 women, putting Poland in the lead when it comes to treating pregnant women with diabetes using personal insulin pumps. Medical records show that 1 319 healthy babies were born thanks to successful insulin treatment!
