With the discovery of insulin in 1921, hopes were high that type 1 diabetes mellitus would soon be cured. However, this goal has remained elusive. Nevertheless, technological advances have improved the management of diabetes and the quality of life of patients with diabetes. One of these advances has been the development of the insulin pump. This article reviews the development of insulin pumps and outlines the advantages and disadvantages of insulin pumps currently available.
