If you are contacted directly by a manufacturer or other organisation to try using a different insulin therapy system you should first discuss this with your diabetes specialist to avoid risk of hyperglycaemia, hypoglycaemia or diabetic ketoacidosis.
Patients are reminded to:
- Use devices that have been recommended or prescribed for them by their diabetes specialist
- Not to stop or change their prescribed insulin management regimen without seeking the advice of their diabetes specialist
- Contact their diabetes specialist if they are invited by a manufacturer to trial a new device e.g. via social media
