    I wanted to let everyone know about a helpful new insulin protector.  We have had to use insulin for my daughter for years.  One night while her grandfather was taking care of her, he accidentally picked up the wrong vial and nearly gave her a fatal dose of her fast acting insulin.  He felt so bad but he couldn’t tell the vials apart.

     

    Finally we found something that would help.  The Insucozi comes in three colors and each is a different shape.  Using the Insucozi has made it easy for my dad to make sure he has the right vial and it makes it easier for us when we are not paying close attention.

     

    Please check out the Insucozi.  It really does make a difference.  www.insucozi.com
