The Best in Diabetes Summer Travel GearDiabetes can be a drag on so many levels, but traveling can take the word vacation and turn it into hell. Injectable insulin needs to be considered because it doesn't like heat and sun. Pumps can get cranky in the heat and sun, too, and meters can have their own form of a meltdown. But the advances of technology and diabetes products DO NOT have to hamper your summer plans.
The FRIO Case
|1 / 6||Next|
The Frio cases are pouches that have panels that contain crystals and when submersed in water for 10-15 minutes, soften into a gel filling the pouch with a cooling effect for your insulin. Each pouch will hold an internal temperature not greater then 79 degrees. Frio pouches are good in excess of 120 degrees! Insulin can be safely stored in the pouches for up to 45 hours before the pouches need to be immersed in water again. When done, let them dry out and the gel turns back into crystals and store until you need it.
