It’s time to take control of your diabetes.
Pumps It Inc. is helping thousands of people with insulin dependent diabetes take control of their diabetes with the latest in medical technology. They can attain better glucose control, have greater freedom of lifestyle and greater quality of life thanks to these wonderful new technology.
Insulin pumps mimic the healthy pancreas by delivering minute amounts of insulin 2 different ways. The first is by delivering a precise background amount of insulin, or “basal” insulin, throughout the day to meet the needs of your body between meals. The basal can be adjusted to meet your unique insulin profile. Bolus insulin is the second way the pump delivers. A bolus is used to cover the carbohydrates you will eat during a meal or a snack. A bolus is also used to help lower blood sugars that are running high. The result is better control of diabetes, better health, and better quality of life!
Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems (CGMS) measure blood sugar hundreds of times per day. This technology not only tells you your blood sugar reading, but also whether your blood sugar is rising or falling, and how fast. This information is critical in deciding how much insulin you need.
Threshold Suspend is the first step towards an artificial pancreas approved by the FDA. This technology for the first time combines CGMS to an insulin pump allowing the user to set a low blood sugar “threshold”. When this threshold is reached the CGM system suspends pump delivery.
Pumps It, Inc. carries all major brands of insulin pumps and CGMS. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call one of our expert Customer Service Professionals.
Let us help you personalize your diabetes products for your lifestyle.
We invite you to join the thousands of patients in the Pumps It family who are taking control of their diabetes.

FDA Approves Dexcom G5® Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring System
August 24, 2015 Dexcom announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the Dexcom G5® Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System. With wireless Bluetooth® technology built into the device transmitter, the G5 Mobile CGM System is the first and only fully mobile CGM system approved by the FDA for both adults and children as young as 2 years of age that sends glucose data directly to a smartphone, freeing users from the need to carry a separate receiver. The new transmitter securely sends vital glucose information directly to an app on iOS-enabled devices for real-time diabetes management. Android applications will follow early next year. Like its predecessor, the G4 PLATINUM CGM with Share, users can also select up to five designated recipients, or "followers”. These followers can remotely monitor a patient's glucose information and receive alert notifications from almost anywhere.
