(NBC NEWS) - A study of children with Type 1 Diabetes suggest insulin pumps may offer more benefits than injections.
The study from Australia included 345 kids on pump therapy, who were compared to children who used insulin injections.
Over several years of follow-up, children who used pumps had better overall control of their blood sugar.
They also had fewer episodes where their blood glucose levels dropped dangerously low.
The benefits were sustained over a period of 7 years.
