Q:

How does an insulin pump help prevent low blood sugar episodes?

A:

An insulin pump can slowly release a small amount of insulin into your body continuously, which helps prevent dips in your blood sugar. Some insulin pumps actually have a sensor that can tell if your blood sugar is dropping too low, and it will stop releasing insulin. Both features can prevent episodes of low blood sugar (or hypoglycemia).

Q:

Can I wear an insulin pump under my clothes?

A:

Many people who wear insulin pumps are able to conceal them under their clothes. Often, people wear them around their waist or even in their undergarments (bra, etc.). You can be very discreet when wearing your insulin pump, and your diabetes care team can help you figure out the best way to wear it for your preference and lifestyle.

Q:

What is the treatment for PCOS?

A:

If your doctor has diagnosed you with PCOS, there are a few treatment options that may be recommended depending on your symptoms and whether you are looking to get pregnant. A weight loss program may be suggested if you are carrying excess weight, and you may be referred to a fertility clinic to help with conception. Some women with PCOS benefit from hormone injections, or even medications to help restore a regular menstrual cycle. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about your specific PCOS treatment plan.
