Octreotide (sandostatin) administered via insulin pump

Recommended Posts

Stumbled on this very interesting poster presentation from doctors in the UK:


The patient could not tolerate the side effects from octreotide injections, so they tried her on an insulin pump delivery mode.

(It seems that octreotide had been delivered by pump for other conditions prior to this, possibly by the "endocrine team" mentioned in the study, so it was not that hard to parlay that experience over to someone with POTS who needed it.)
