Another Two Children with Diabetes Received Insulin Pumps at University Hospital "St. Marina"

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. Violeta Yotova.

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 their purchase.
