The publication of the landmark Diabetes Control and Complications Trial 
results in 1993 provided a strong impetus to achieve near-normalization of 
blood glucose levels in type I diabetic patients using intensive insulin 
therapy programs. Recent studies show less hypoglycemia with this form of 
intensive therapy and equivalent or improved glycemic control. Insulin pump 
therapy is achieving wider acceptance and application in diabetes management. 
This commentary reviews the current status of insulin pump therapy, including 
indications and future directions.
