Two children with diabetes at the age of 3
and 8 received a donation of sets of insulin pumps and sensor
devices at University Hospital "St. Marina" - Varna. The donation was
accomplished thanks to the funds raised during the joint national campaign dedicated
to insulin therapy conducted by Association "Touch the Rainbow", founded
by Baroness Denislava Angelova, and the country's first Centre for Innovative Therapies
and Advanced Technologies in Diabetes (CITAT-D) at the University Hospital.
Infusion insulin pumps are innovative, effective and expensive
therapy that allows children with diabetes to lead a normal life. Thanks to
them, there is no need for young patients to observe a strict daily regimen and undergo multiple
punctures every day. Another great advantage of pump therapy is
that children can be monitored from distance, which reduces their stay in
hospital. 40 diabetic children, aged 0 to 18, from Eastern Bulgaria are treated
at the Centre for Innovative Therapies and Advanced Technologies in Diabetes at
University Hospital "St. Marina" in Varna, headed by Prof. Dr.
Baroness Denislava Angelova expressed special
gratitude to the entire management of University Hospital "St.
Marina" for their support, and the Executive Director Prof. Dr. Valentin
Ignatov guaranteed the efficient operation of all medical teams at the hospital
for the benefit of the children and their families. The Association and the parents
expressed their gratitude to Prof. Dr. Violeta Yotova and the doctors, who take
care of the children with diabetes and support them every single day.
The insulin pumps and sensor
devices were given by Ms. Greta Zheleva, a representative of
"Labirint" Residential Complex and Eng. Dimitar Vasilev, who helped for
