Summer is upon us, and as the temperatures rise so does our need for a whole new set of diabetes supplies and accessories. Insulin coolers, travel/to-go cases, and stuff that helps our diabetes tech stay put through the sun, sweat, and swimming. Here’s a list of NEW Diabetes Gear & Accessories for Summer 2023 that I’ve found. Let me know in the comments if you know of anything else and I’ll add it!

NEW Diabetes Gear & Accessories for Summer 2023

Not Just a Patch: Air Patches

Lighter than air, these edge to edge adhesive patches are made for a guaranteed 14 day hold. They are waterproof, sweat proof, and life proof! CGM styles include Freestyle Libre, Dexcom, and Medtronic CGMs.These patches use a Unique micropore patch for 100% breathability and no fraying!

I have not tried these but they look amazing! And I’m not sure how I’ve never heard of this company until just now, but I’m glad I found them!

Myabetic Insulin Vial Protectors

There are few things worse in diabetes land than when a glass vial, full of insulin, shatters on the ground. That’s why a few years ago THIS was the only way I stored my insulin vials. Since then a few companies (like SugarMedical) have come out with insulin vial protectors. And now, Myabetic has just launched their own line of insulin vial protectors.

    Glad to see you don’t include “smart” watches. They emit microwave radiation directly into the skin. Many people have ditched them due to skin rashes and other problems associated with microwave sickness. Cell phone companies tell you to keep the phone an inch away from your body yet the watch uses the same frequency as a phone and is directly against the body. They know no shame in the name of profit.
