Stylish Diabetes Supply Cases From Myabetic.com

Kyrra Richards, who has type 1 diabetes, has transformed her desire for a stylish diabetes carrying case into a thriving business. Her sense of style has struck a chord with a large audience, including a company that is working with her to customize her line to its pump. It’s been several years since Diabetes Health interviewed Kyrra at an AADE conference (I spoke to her recently to catch up and see how things were going. Nadia: Carrying cases often look like first aid kits, but yours do not. Has your educational background influenced your eye for design? Kyrra: I studied art in college, but I couldn’t have guessed that my UCLA arts background would be applied to medical accessories. But that’s part of the fun: applying creativity to otherwise dreary situations. Because I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the abnormally old age of 24, I was able to view my new lifestyle from a unique perspective. I used my love of color, design, and imagery to give diabetes management a fresh new look. Nadia: What motivated you to design a line of carrying cases for people with diabetes? Kyrra: I became depressed after my diagnosis. I felt as though I had lost my identity as an active, spirited young woman. I had been thrown into a clinical and regimented world and feared that I would be defined by a negative stigma. I would often “forget” to carry my diabetes supplies or hide my testing tools under the table to avoid attracting attention. I needed a change. My attitude was mentally and physically harmful. I had to find a way to accept my diagnosis and embrace diabetes as just a part of my life. I wanted my daily diabetes care to reflect my own individuality. I began designing fun, fashionable, and functional supply cases for my blood glucose meter, test strips, lancets, a Continue reading >>

Clothing That Accommodates Insulin Pumps And Pens

Clothing That Accommodates Insulin Pumps And Pens

Fashion and function come together in clothing developed by AnnaPS, making life a bit more comfortable and convenient for insulin users. The clothing line offered by AnnaPS has easy to access integrated pockets that accommodate insulin pumps, insulin pump hand units, insulin pens, and glucose meters. The products are for men, women, and children, and are sized up to XXL. Each garment is cut to follow the body’s natural contours, and movements. Pockets and Material The pump pockets are discrete, designed so items will not fall out during any type of activity, and tubing is kept on the inside. In most of the garments, insulin pumps can be pocketed without disconnecting the infusion set. There are several types of pocket placements and tube openings available, allowing people to carry pumps horizontally, vertically, upwards, or downwards. The material used for most AnnaPS clothing is Tencel, a silky, soft, breathable cloth that absorbs moisture, and is suitable for work, or play. There are also products made of cotton, and polyamide—a sports material. About AnnaPS AnnaPS is a young enterprise started by Anna Sjoberg who has type 1 diabetes. Being an active person, Anna wanted a more comfortable, discrete way to carry an insulin pump than a cumbersome case. She generated her pocketed clothing line by collaborating with a group of diabetics, healthcare professionals, and the pump manufacturer Medtronic. The first garment developed, a panty with an integrated pocket, was tested in 2010, and the initial AnnaPS products were marketed in 2011. Since then, the clothing line has expanded to include items for kids and adults of both genders. Company With A Conscience By purchasing AnnaPS clothing consumers are not only getting a functional product, but are supporting a socially Continue reading >>

Diabetes Carry Case Reviews From Diabetesmine

Diabetes Carry Case Reviews From Diabetesmine

One universal truth about living with diabetes is that you’ll need to carry around a lot of gear – a glucose meter with lancing device and test strips, medications, low-blood sugar treatments and more, with backups for everything when you travel. Women with diabetes often joke that their days of cute little party purses are over. And men with diabetes often complain that there aren’t enough options for male-friendly diabetes gear bags. If you take insulin, there’s also the issue of keeping that sensitive drug safe and temperature-controlled (cool enough not to overheat but also never freezing). What to do for tote bags and travel-case options? Over the years, DiabetesMine has looked at an array of carry bags and insulin coolers that help solve these issues (in alphabetical order): aDorn Designs - link to our video review aDorn makes a collection of fashionable handbags, clutch cases and even an over-the-shoulder messenger bag designed specifically to carry diabetes supplies. Special zipper compartments with mesh pockets and elastic grips make it easy to store glucose test strips, syringes, fast-acting glucose and more. In this review, we look at the Elite clutch case in bright patterns. BellaSoul - link to our written review Founded by the aunt of a type 1, Bella Soul has a line of both classy patent leather evening bags and embroidered shoulder bags that have built-in pockets for your diabetes supplies.

Diabetes Supply Cases Worth Carrying

Diabetes Supply Cases Worth Carrying

Diabetes is rarely a glamorous condition, and that’s especially true when it comes to stashing and transporting all the high- and low-tech doodads we use to keep ourselves healthy. While most glucometers come with their own black vinyl zipper cases, you don’t have to be stuck with factory-issued fashion. Both men and women with diabetes have options than you may think. Go custom. In response to the black vinyl crisis, several small companies have begun making carriers that offer some more sophisticated options. Myabetic offers colorful cases that can easily pass for regular-people wallets and purses, while Diabete-ezy sells containers that could likely hold an entire endocrinologist’s office, and – as a result – are a little more utilitarian in appearance. Go cosmetic. Your local drugstore, department store or supermarket likely has an aisle full of cosmetic cases in dozens of different sizes and styles. Use a larger one when you want to carry everything from alcohol swabs to glucagon kits; smaller cases work when all you need is a testing kit and some glucose tabs. If you’re the kind of PWD who likes everything in its place, look for a cosmetics case with separate compartments – then put your lancing device where the lipstick’s supposed to go. Repurpose. In a pinch, random household vessels can be reinvented as diabetes supply holders. Coin purses, pencil cases and jewelry bags can usually do the job. An empty sunglasses case can easily hold a small glucometer and a few other bare necessities. Even a clean sock can help keep it all together if you’re desperate enough. Use what you like. Try searching Etsy for pouches, purses, wristlets and carriers – there’s no shortage of sophisticated vessels that zip, snap, fold and button. Keep an eye out at v Continue reading >>

Insulin Pump Pocket Holder Case & Insulin Pump Safe

Insulin Pump Pocket Holder Case & Insulin Pump Safe

Step 1. Throw top of loop over towel bar. Step 2. Move case through back loop. Several years ago one of our staff people started on an insulin pump and began looking for a convenient and comfortable case for sleeping with her pump. She tried clipping her pump to the Glasses Hanger case. She was so enthusiastic with the result that, thus, was born the Insulin Pump Pocket case. These cases are light weight and made of washable high quality soft double faced quilted fabric. We make them in three strap lengths--approximately 24 inches, approximately 30 inches, and approximately 36 inches long. The pump is inserted into the hanging pocket and the strap is suspended around the neck. ADVANTAGES of our Pump Pocket cases are: 1) It is not necessary to attach anything to sleep clothing with pins or other uncomfortable fasteners; 2) Your pump can be safely placed away from your body for comfortable sleep, yet it is safely tethered to you; 3) For those evening trips to the washroom you need not worry about dropping your pump in your weariness; 4) For your shower you may disconnect from the pump and safely hang it from a hook or door knob; 5) It is a marvelous aid when dressing, i.e., you can wear your pump safely so that it does not get in the way or falls on the floor when changing or trying on clothes. The Pump Pocket case will fit most insulin pump models; we suggest that it works best if your pump has a clip that attaches to its outer case. This clip may be used to secure the pump in the Pump Pocket case. Tie closed and Velcro Brand closed versions may be used with pumps which do not have attached clips. Tie or Velcro closures keep the pump safely secured in the holder. We have introduced a totally clear heavy plastic Pump Pocket for those who want to view their pumps without Continue reading >>

True Confessions Of A Serial Case Changer

True Confessions Of A Serial Case Changer

True Confessions of a Serial Case Changer Editors Note:Mary is a part of Beyond Type Run Team , which is sponsoredby Medtronic . She is participating in the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. Um, my coworker Alexi said as she watched me tap the screen of my t:slim insulin pump, didnt I see you post a photo with an orange case like, an hour ago? Ha ha yes I laughed sheepishly as I clipped my pump, now enclosed in a pink case, back to the waistband of my jeans, Im what I like to call a serial case changer. A what? someone else chimed in among giggles. A serial case changer. I think I change my pump case with more regularity that I do my infusion sites or lancets. I like to match them to my outfit and how I feel. I explained. This might seem silly to some. Why should I be so concerned if my pump case or dexcom sticker matches my outfit? Shouldnt I be paying more attention to dutifully changing the aforementioned infusion sites and lancets? Shouldnt I be busy figuring out carb and insulin calculations instead of trying to decide between one diabetes supply case or another? I mean come on, its not like the pretty sparkly accessories for diabetes are keeping me alive. But in a way, they are. They are how I make some normalcy out of this disease. They are how I can still feel like myself. They are how I can make myself feel better about having this shitty disease and having to deal with it every. Single. Day. Because at least if I can concentrate on making my devices look good, I can feel a little better about myself and my disease, and I can keep on going. I got my first pump, a Medtronic MiniMed, in 6th grade. I was starting at a new school and was both nervous about my appearance but confident. Sixthgrade was when my love of fashion really started to develop and solidify, as Continue reading >>

The Comprehensive Guide To Diabetes Organizers – How To Find The Right Organizer For You

The Comprehensive Guide To Diabetes Organizers – How To Find The Right Organizer For You

Having diabetes means that you always have to be prepared for an emergency. Aside from knowing exactly what to do in a given circumstances, it is also crucial that you are organized with your diabetes medication and supplies. This way, you can get treatment as soon as possible without having your condition worsen. But without a designated organizer to hold all your diabetes supplies, you will very likely face with many situations where you have to scramble and dig through your bag to find your supplies. It also increases the chances of misplacing items and forgetting to refill certain supply items. Instead of going through this vicious cycle and constantly worry about your condition, get yourself a diabetic supply organizer and start organizing. Where to Begin & Things to Consider? Before you start looking for an organizer for all your diabetic supplies, consider your needs. You can begin by making a list of your daily supplies and lay out everything you need on a table. This will quickly give you an idea how big of an organizer you will need. Take a moment to measure your biggest items such as your monitor, your syringes, and your glucagon emergency kit. This will give you the minimum requirement of how big your organizer must be. Anything smaller, you will not be able to fit these items in your supply organizer. The next question is how often will you replenish your supplies? If you have a busy lifestyle and you want to replenish your supplies once a week, you will need a bigger organizer than if you are going to refill your supplies every day. For the Non-Insulin Users If you do not require insulin injections, a simple case that can fit your medication, your blood glucose monitor, and some emergency food will suffice. In most cases, people will simply use a cosmetic Continue reading >>

Case Study: A Patient With Type 1 Diabetes Who Transitions To Insulin Pump Therapy By Working With An Advanced Practice Dietitian

Case Study: A Patient With Type 1 Diabetes Who Transitions To Insulin Pump Therapy By Working With An Advanced Practice Dietitian

Registered dietitians (RDs) who have earned the Board Certified–Advanced Diabetes Manager (BC-ADM) credential hold a master’s or doctorate degree in a clinically relevant area and have at least 500 hours of recent experience helping with the clinical management of people with diabetes.1 They work in both inpatient and outpatient settings, including diabetes or endocrine-based specialty clinics, primary care offices, hospitals, and private practices. Advanced practice dietitians provide all components of diabetes care, including advanced assessment (medical history and physical examination), diagnosis, medical management, education, counseling, and overall case management. The role of RDs in case and disease management was explored in a recent article2 that included interviews with three dietitians who work as case managers or disease managers. All three reported experiencing challenges in practice and noted that the meaning of “case management” varies from one health care setting to another. This is also true for RD, BC-ADMs. Advanced practice dietitians specializing in diabetes require case management expertise that stresses communication skills, knowing the limits of your own discipline, knowing how to interact with other health care professionals, and knowing when to seek the expertise of other members of the diabetes care team. Clinical practice includes assessment and data collection, diagnosis and problem identification, planning, and intervention. In many cases, diabetes educators who are dietitians and those who are nurses are cross-trained to perform the same roles. The first one to meet with a client handles that client’s assessment, and cases are discussed and interventions planned at weekly team meetings. Assessment and Data Collection For advanced Continue reading >>
