National Diabetes Insulin Pump Audit 2016-2017
Published: 14 Jun 2018
The Insulin Pump Audit collects information on the number and characteristics of people with diabetes using an insulin pump, the reasons for going on an insulin pump and the outcomes achieved since starting the pump. The data included in the attached report was collected between 2016 – 2017 from Trusts based within England and Wales.
Key findings include:
Improved participation and data quality means that the report this year is more comprehensive and clinically useful
The rate at which people with Type 1 diabetes are starting pump treatment has stabilised
The proportion of people with Type 1 diabetes attending specialist services that are treated with pumps varies from >40% to <5%
Between two thirds and three quarters of pump users are recorded as achieving their pump treatment goals
Nine out of ten people reached their target goal for hypoglycaemia
Seven out of ten people reached their target goal for glucose control
Despite being a younger cohort, Type 1 diabetes pump users more often achieve all their treatment targets, and on average have a lower HbA1c, than their non-pump using peers.
