  • Infusion sets and troubleshooting
  • Continuous glucose monitoring
  • Hypo/Hyperglycemia
  • Exercise and adjustment of insulin pump settings
  • Advanced pump features such as dual wave/combo bolus/temp basal rates
  • Carbohydrate counting (adjusting for fibre/sugar alcohols, resources, etc.)
  • Alcohol
  • Foot care
  • Any other concerns related to insulin pump therapy you may have

Details

The program runs one Thursday morning, every other month, for approximately two hours and includes a visit with both an registered nurse (RN) and registered dietitian (RD).

You will be asked to upload your pump to either Carelink Personal (Medtronic) or Diasend (Animas and OmniPod).

Following your follow-up visit you will be booked into another follow-up based on a discussion between you and the RN and RD.
