ANDRADE, Raísa Gabrielle dos Santos et al. Judicial proceedings for the acquisition of insulin pump in the city of Ribeirão Preto. Rev. Bioét. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.1, pp.102-108. ISSN 1983-8042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-80422018261231.

This exploratory, descriptive, documental and statistical article, with a quantitative approach, aims to analyze individual legal cases for the supply of insulin pump by users of the Sistema Único de Saúde (unified health system) in a municipality in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. We identified 40 (6.2%) cases demanding insulin pumps. Most of the cases were filed by men in the age group of 11 to 20 years. We also identified cases for the acquisition of drugs and other products such as glucometers and infusion sets, and insulin reservoirs. This study promotes discussions about the rights and integral care of people with diabetes mellitus. Thus, one hopes that it contributes to the understanding of how the process of judicialization can assist users in the search of new perspectives for the care of diabetes mellitus.
