If you are not diabetic or have someone in your inner circle that is, I'm guessing you haven't much exposure to what it takes to live day in and day out with the disease. Diabetes can either rule your life or you can beat it into a manageable submission...both take a great deal of work and often lots of gear.
For years, 12 to be exact, I've carried a glucometer, test strips, syringes, lancets, insulin vials or pens and glucose tabs...EVERY. WHERE. I. GO. ALWAYS. It is just life and what is needed to sustain mine. It affects everything including the type of trending purses I can or can not carry (meter has to fit. It just does).
As with most medical equipment, the makers really aren't thinking "style" or "fashion" or even "daily function" in mind. Don't even get me started on medical ID jewelry; bulky, ugly, geriatric, big, did I say ugly? And what if its your adorable five year old whom lives with this challenge? How do you identify his or her needs in case he or she cannot?
