Cutler May Wear an Insulin Pump Next Season

The Daily Herald reports that Jay Cutler may go to an insulin pump next season to control his diabetes:

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler says he’s considering wearing an insulin pump next season to better control his diabetes. Currently Cutler gives himself several insulin injections each day to maintain proper blood sugar levels. A pump provides a continuous, flexible amount of insulin, usually through a small catheter. “I tried it out probably a month after I was diagnosed, (during) the off-season workouts,” Cutler said. “It kept falling off, and I just got away from it and stuck with the shots. This off-season I’m going to possibly look into (the pump).”
