Carrying Cases

Return to Article

SUPPLEMENTARY CONTENT

Keeping your insulin cool and your diabetes supplies organized while away from home can be a challenge, but the following companies sell carrying cases that can help. Most use a refreezable cold pack for refrigeration, while the Frio products use crystals that are activated by tap water and stay cold for hours or even days. Cases vary in size, appearance, and price, as well as how long they’ll keep your insulin cool, so contact the manufacturers for specifics.
