My daughter is Type 1 Diabetic which means she needs to carry medical supplies and sugar with her at all times. Fining a cute diabetes bag isn’t easy. At first, she used a purse but finding a purse to accommodate all of her supplies, especially a glucagon was difficult. We were so please when we found Myabetic, a diabetes bag…
The Love Bug Diabetes Case is a very fun diabetes bag for girls. This bag makes diabetes more manageable with it’s fun heart/butterfly-shaped case. All the girls in her class wants one!
Not only is it stylish but it is more than enough room for diabetes supplies, sugar, and even girly stuff. This girls diabetes bag has 2 separate compartments that securely zip open and close.
The first section holds the majority of my daughter’s diabetes supplies. It has two removable pockets, two elastic loops, and two larger net pockets to hold your child’s unique combination of supplies (a glucose meter, a CGM receiver, an OmniPod PDM, test strip drums, lancing devices, lancet needles, insulin pens, pen needles, insulin vials and syringes).
One the left side, we place a bottle of test strips in the elastic loop. We put remeasured 15 carb packs of candy and icing in the large net pocket. In the removable pouch, we have alcohol wipes and tissues.
On the right side, we place her Genteel lancer in the elastic strip, her glucose meter in the large pocket, and extra lancets in the removable pocket.
I really like the removable pockets. It keeps small things like lancets and lancer tips secure and easily accessible.
The second zippered section is large enough to hold just about any diabetes item or snacks. We put her glucagon in this section with plenty of room leftover for snacks, lip gloss or other items. You could also put a FRIO cooling pouch, infusion sets, sensors, cartridges, batteries, power cords, alcohol swabs, glucose tabs, emergency snacks, Glucagon kits, log books, medical forms and IDs in this section too.
My daughter wears this diabetes bag like a purse, in fact her friends think it is her purse. It comes with an optional, detachable shoulder strap that can be adjusted to be worn cross body, as a purse, or attached to something else, like a backpack.You can purchase the Love Bug Diabetes Case on the Myabetic website for $59.95.
