1. EASIER INJECTIONS: Do you - or your loved one - struggle to change the needle in an insulin pen? A device like the Unifine Pentips Plus may be the answer. This pen needle comes with an integrated remover and disposal chamber - a plus for when you're out and about.
2. MEMORY BOOSTERS: If you can't remember whether you've taken your insulin injection, then devices like the Timesulin Smart Timer (available for Sanofi SoloStar, Novo Nordisk FlexPens and Lilly KwikPen) or InsulCheck (available for ClickSTAR and NovoPen4) could help. These fit on a number of different insulin pens, replacing the usual cap and turning it into a 'smart' pen that will show you how much time has passed since your last injection.
3. STORAGE SOLUTIONS: Between meters, lancets, test wipes, injectables and insulin pens, there are a LOT of diabetes supplies for you to keep track of! Keep your kit protected, and your medications and insulin safe from the elements by investing in a diabetes travel case, such as the Diabete-ezy Ezy-fit case, Frio Travel Wallets, or Kids' Myabetic Diabetes Case.
4. CARB COUNTING CALCULATOR: New to counting carbs? The Australian CarbCounter The Traffic Light Guide to Food app can help you add them up more easily? It has over 2,000 foods in its database (including restaurant and takeaway options) and the ability to help you calculate the total carb counts in your meals in grams, portions or carb exchanges.
