Jeevikashree was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes for the past 11 years. Since then, she has been on four times a day insulin. However, her glucose control has been extremely poor in spite of being on close to 100 units of insulin per day. There is a huge risk of kidney failure and blindness at these levels. She would greatly benefit from insulin pump therapy, a gadget that delivers insulin in a physiological manner. She is currently on a trial insulin pump and doing extremely well. Her dad works in a private company and earns only around Rs 14,000 per month. This would make it extremely difficult for them to afford the insulin pump. Donating an insulin pump would be life changing and life saving for Jeevika. Idhayangal Charitable Trust and the family will take care of the recurring expenses associated with pump therapy.
Doctor’s recommendation: (Dr Krishnan Swaminathan) Jeevikashri is an ideal candidate for insulin pump therapy as her glucoses are uncontrolled on multiple daily injections with a huge chance of major hospital admissions and kidney failure. Cost of one Medtronic 715 Insulin pump is Rs 65,000.
