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, 1 776 modern personal insulin pumps available for rent from 38 medical facilities nationwide. 
 
Personal insulin pumps were rented out to 4 931 women, and 2 502 healthy babies were born! 
 
 


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. 

In the years 2004 - 2020, these pumps have been used by  4 931 women, putting Poland in the lead when treating pregnant women with diabetes using personal insulin pumps. Medical records show that 2 502  healthy babies were born thanks to successful insulin treatment!
