Insulin pump use in Australia explores the number, characteristics and experiences of insulin pump users, using information from the National Diabetes Services Scheme and the first national survey of insulin pump users, conducted by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. In 2011, the proportion of Australians with Type 1 diabetes using an insulin pump was approximately 10%, representing an increase over previous years. Pump use was more common among females and people under 25 years, and for most pump users the benefits of pump use outweighed the problems.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people had a lower incidence of type 1 diabetes than non-Indigenous people
From 2000 to 2013 there were 31,895 new cases of type 1 diabetes in Australia
From 2001-2013, the rate of type 1 diabetes was lower in remote and very remote areas compared with other areas
In 2013, the incidence of type 1 diabetes was higher for males (12 per 100,000) than for females (9 per 100,000)
This report examines the use of insulin pumps by people with Type 1 diabetes. It represents the most up-to-date national reporting of this information in Australia. The findings are based on administrative data supplied by Diabetes Australia and data from the Insulin Pump User Survey, conducted by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare in 2011.
