    Hi Garry!
    Wow! Who knew there could be so many insulin pump accessories. I personally don’t know anybody who has an insulin pump but I do see them quite often in the hospital.
    I hope you are doing well with controlling your diabetes. I see many who struggle but also many who are doing well.
    I thank you for this informative article. Maybe I can see some examples of these products in the future. I’ve seen more of the clips and holsters but not the other ones (not that I can remember anyway).

    All the best to your endeavors.

      Hi Migzzz

      I do know a few people on the insulin pump, some have got better control now, others just can’t get to grips with it. I personally was refused a pump by my team due to my eyesight damage from diabetes. The numbers on the screen were just too small for me to manage to set the pump up or make any adjustments…… I count the clicks on my insulin pens for the correct dosage.

  2. You are writing about a very important subject. There are many people suffering with diabetes. I agree with you, protecting the pump is very important.

      Hi Rev.John Harrison

      That is true there are many many people suffering from diabetes around the world, and the rate of type 2’s is increasing very fast.

      Some diabetic equipment is very expensive to buy so it makes sense to protect it

  3. Hi, Garry.
    First of all, I’d like to thank you for dedicating your time and life purpose to diabetic people. My grandma is diabetic, too, and I grew up watching her dealing with this illness. It is sad that our society treats diabetes as if it was part of our culture instead of for what it truly is: A rapidly growing chronical illness which often could be prevented with a few, but lasting, changes in someone’s lifestyle. What do you think is the best accessory for the insulin pump? I can actually picture my grandma handling such a bra pouch well. I’m sometimes worried that she’d leave her pump someplace where she can’t reach it in case of an emergency. Where would it be better stored than close to her heart? Just a thought, but I will definitely suggest her some sort of accessory. Yours seem pretty neat and well explained, too.

    Thank you so much for all this great info.

    Sending you much love, happiness and an abundance of all good things,

    Keryn

      Hi Keryn,
      Thank you for your kind words

      Lifestyle changes would only prevent some cases of Type 2 diabetes, not type 1 diabetes.

      I personally do not have an insulin pump, I’m on injections, but I think the most popular accessory is a waist or body pouch.
