TRAVEL WITH A DIABETES BAG

Packing your suitcase and/or bag is slightly different when you have diabetes. Diace understands that. A diabetes bag can make all the difference, by being able to keep all your essentials together. The bag has a compartment for your measuring and testing equipment (and needles and strips) and a compartment to keep your injection pens cool. Due to the insulating lining, the temperature in the bag remains constant.

KEEP YOUR INSULIN PEN COOL WHEN TRAVELING

Are you going to a warm holiday destination? Then let the Frio Double cooler bag lend themselves well to cooling your pens. The Frio keeps two insulin pens at the right temperature for 45 hours. All you have to do is put the cooling bag in water for ten minutes beforehand. In addition, the Frio is reusable.
