Children with type 1 diabetes who initiate insulin pump use within six months of diagnosis have better outcomes than those who delay initiation until the second or third year after diagnosis, a study suggests.

Researchers examined data on more than 8300 youth diagnosed with type 1 diabetes between the ages of six months and 15 years.
