Abstract

Objective: Current goals of treatment of diabetes are to achieve near-normal glycemia, minimize the risk of severe hypoglycemia, limit excessive weight gain, and to improve quality of life. Insulin pump or continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) therapy provides a treatment option to aid in achieving all of these goals. CSII is a viable alternative to multiple daily injections (MDI) therapy for patients with diabetes who are capable and motivated. In this study, we aimed to compare the diabetic control and treatment satisfaction in our patients using CSII and MDI.
