Video Title: Incorporating Insulin Pumps Into Your Lifestyle Duration: 46 seconds

Many patients have concerns as to how they're going to incorporate the pump into their wardrobe or their lifestyle.

Lots of patients wear their pumps on their waist as they would a pager, other patients hide them in their bras, their undergarments so to be more discreet, others tend to put them in their pocket.

If you have any further questions regarding how you could wear your pump, the best resources are your insulin pump trainer or your diabetes clinical care team.

The one thing to keep in mind is we live in an area of gadgets, and most people have no idea what it is, and will assume it's a pager.
