Things we use to monitor and medicate diabetes

The diabetes management equipment we use can have a huge affect on how often or how well we use it, being directly associated with how often we blood test and inject. If you don’t like your diabetes equipment, you won’t use it!

Here, you should find information that will help you choose which diabetes equipment to buy (or to ask your clinic for). We have sorted our diabetes equipment into these categories. See the menu on the left-hand side to see products listed under each of the following sections:

1. Blood test meters, test strips
2. Lancing devices, lancets
3. Insulin pens, injection aids
4. Insulin pumps, pump accessories
5. Hypo treatments
6. Food and diet
7. Accessories: Diet
8. Accessories: Travel
9. Accessories: Children and young adults
10. Accessories: Eyes, feet, clothing
11. Accessories: Pill medication
12. Medical ID
