Kids and Pumps

More and more young people are using insulin pumps. Even very young children have successfully adjusted to the pump. Joslin’s Pediatric Health Services protocol for initiating pump therapy ensures the most positive outcomes. This includes evaluation and teamwork involving a Joslin physician, nurse educator, registered dietitian, child development specialist and, most importantly, the patient and the patient’s family. For more information on pump therapy for teens and children, contact your Joslin pediatrician, or make an appointment with Joslin Pediatric Health Services by calling (617) 732-2603 or visiting Pediatric Health Services.
