In brief: Stabilize levels
Insulin is used to treat type 1 diabetes (sometimes in young people--juvenile dm).
An Insulin pmp allows the diabetic to avoid wide fluctuations in bld sgr keeping fasting @90, an hour after eating < 160, and return to @100 in 2 hrs. Eating 5 small meals per day, drinking adequate fluids, being relaxed while eating, mild daily exercise...Is ideal for anyone. That's less than 1% of americans.

In brief: Pros of insulin pump
The advantage of the pump is that it mimics Insulin delivery similar to your pancreas.
Generally with the pump you can achieve much tighter blood sugar control. The frequency of low blood sugars can also be reduced by appropriate adjustment of the Insulin delivered. Fluctuations in blood sugars can be reduced. The Insulin pump has the advantage of being able to deliver different basal rates
