Diabetes can cause emotional consequences, especially if you feel that you are limited by your condition. The truth is that the more active you are and the better you feel about yourself, the better you’ll be able to control diabetes, and not have it control you. Arm yourself with a diabetes organizer and you’ll be able to simply slip this diabetic supply case in a purse, tote or backpack and get on with your life—and the social connections that contribute to good mental health.
A diabetes daily organizer is essential if you work or volunteer away from home. It can hold whatever you need on a daily basis, such as your blood glucose meter and test strips. If you use insulin, look for a diabetic organizer that has insulated compartments to keep your supplies at the right temperature. The Protector Insulin Case from Medicool, for instance, has a cooler pack to hold 2 insulin bottles and keep them cold for up to 16 hours. The attractive, durable case has pockets for syringes, prep pads and more, plus a strap for carrying it easily. Another choice is the aptly named Everyday Diabetes Organizer, a lightweight, compact diabetes supply case with both a cool and a room temperature side; it actually holds enough supplies for up to 3 days and has a sharp disposal container that is FDA approved.
For traveling for longer periods of time or longer distances, consider the MediCooler Insulin Micro Fridge, a lightweight and portable carrier for people who are active and on the go. It will refrigerate up to 6 standard 10 mL insulin/injectable medicine vials or two injectable pens for diabetes. It features an internal temperature switch that is pre-set to turn the unit on when the internal temperature exceeds 50F and to turn off when it falls below 40F. It includes UL certified 110V (house current) power cord and 12V DC (car) power cord.
Whether you have a day trip in mind or that exotic vacation you’ve always dreamed of, a diabetic organizer helps you manage your diabetes properly without crimping your plans.
