The Best Diabetes Cases For Everyday Use
If you have diabetes or know someone with diabetes, it may feel like you are packing for an Arctic expedition every time you leave the house! Unfortunately, when living with diabetes, you cannot simply leave the house with your keys, mobile and wallet/purse, there is so much more planning involved. Blood glucose meter, test strips, alcohol wipes, insulin, lancets, test strips, hypo kit.... the list goes on! When it comes to travelling, there is even more to consider including the correct storage and temperature of insulin.
So how can someone with diabetes remain organised and leave the house without extra baggage?!
The good news is that with a little planning and the right ‘tools’, you can go about your everyday in an organised, manageable way. In this post we outline a few key cases that are ideal for diabetes.
Diabetes Cooling Wallets
Just as there are different types of insulin, there are also different types of diabetes cooling wallets to safely store insulin.
1. Cooling wallet using a freezer
Travelling and want to keep your insulin cool? A cooling wallet for pens or vials that is kept in the freezer is one option. Super easy and ready to use when you are out and about. Try the MedActive wallet and cases which remains within 2-8 degrees for up to 5 hours.
2. Cooling wallet using cold water
Diabetes cooling wallets, otherwise known as insulin cooler bags, using cold water is a great way to carry diabetes essentials including pens, vials and cartridges. EpiPens (Adrenaline: for emergency treatment of anaphylactic reactions), Rheumatoid Arthritis and Crohn’s Disease Medications can also be stored in diabetes cooling wallets.
Cooling wallets using crystal cooling technology do not require refrigeration or freezing, just cold water to activate! They are reusable, compact and travel friendly and keep insulin with the recommended safe temperature range for a minimum of 36 hours.
