Abstract

Hospital UKM (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia) introduced the use of insulin pump therapy in children and adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes in Malaysia in April 2004. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of pump therapy and its impact on metabolic control among patients from our institution. Insulin pump therapy resulted in sustainable improvement in glycemic control throughout the six years of treatment with reduction in HbA1c in the first two years of pump use was statistically significant. The BMI SDS showed an increase trend but the changes before and after pump use was insignificant. There is also high level of treatment satisfaction reported among our insulin pump patients.
