Insulin pumps for rent!

 

Nationwide Programme for Personal Insulin Treatment for 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 which is leased to women with diabetes, who are planning a pregnancy or are currently pregnant. Since 2004 we have purchased 1573 modern personal insulin pumps which are available for rent from 37 medical facilities nationwide. 
 
Personal insulin pumps were rented out to 4 115 women, and 1 846 healthy babies were born! 
 
 


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 - 2020, these pumps have been used by  4 115 women, putting Poland in the lead when it comes to treating pregnant women with diabetes using personal insulin pumps. Medical records show that 1 846 healthy babies were born thanks to successful insulin treatment!
