Abstract

Insulin infusion pump therapy has dramatically improved over the past 20 years and can now address some of the specific challenges related to toddlers with diabetes. We discuss both the non-randomized and randomized controlled trials comparing continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) and multiple daily injections (MDI) in this age group. There are advantages and disadvantages related to both CSII and MDI treatments, and ultimately the decision to use CSII should be individualized for each patient and family with the guidance of their diabetes team.
