The Future For Insulin Pump Companies: Who Will Survive?

www.diabeticinvestor.com As problems for Tandem continue, and with Johnson & Johnson abandoning the insulin pump market, it’s beginning to dawn on some people that we soon could live in a world with just two insulin pump companies – Medtronic and Insulet. [Editor’s Note: Johnson & Johnson reached out to us with the following information: “Animas continues to manufacture, deliver and support its products and provide the service our patients expect. We remain committed to our patients, and we intend to honor our warranty and do not anticipate any interruptions to patients’ pump therapy. If patients or potential patients have any concerns, they can contact Animas online or at 1-877-YES-PUMP.”] Ok, to be fair, Roche also has a pump, but their market presence is lacking. Also, to be fair, Bigfoot is working on a system, but it isn’t here yet. Plus, there is growing belief that patients can achieve optimum control using a CGM smart insulin pen system. Given where things stand today, the real possibility exists that when it comes to insulin pumps, patient choice will be very limited.

    Sameer
    There is a reason why your doctor prescribed insulin for you to use. It is because your blood sugar levels went very high and you were in danger of dying.
    Do you not think it is a bit silly of you to contemplate stopping it? What do you think will happen to you if you stop?
    If you are having hypo feelings, its either because you are not eating enough carbohydrate at set meal times or if you are eating correctly, maybe the insulin doseage needs to adjusted. What you must not do if you want to live, is stop insulin.
