National Diabetes Insulin Pump Audit 2017-18 Report
Published: 08 Aug 2019
The National Diabetes 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 on the pump. Almost two-thirds of the specialist diabetes services in England that participated in the Core National Diabetes Audit (NDA) 2017-18 also submitted insulin pump data.
Some of the key findings of this report include:
The rate at which people with Type 1 diabetes are starting pump treatment has stabilised.
The proportion of people with Type 1 diabetes who are on an insulin pump varies from less than five per cent in some specialist services to over 40 per cent in others.
Over 90 per cent of people reached their target goal for hypoglycaemia. Around 80 percent of people (83.9% for England and 71.6% for Wales) reached their target goal for glucose control.
