Diabetes Tips: Caring for Your Supplies

separator Keeping your diabetes supplies in good condition is an essential part of your diabetes care plan. Here are some things you’ll need to know if you’ve just been diagnosed with diabetes: 

Don’t expose your supplies to extreme heat or extreme cold.
If you’re traveling, take plenty of supplies with you. When you’re in a new place, you may not be able to find exactly what you normally use for testing, injecting, etc. Take more than enough with you, and don’t put it in checked baggage if you’re flying. 

Stay in touch with your diabetes educator. These professionals can keep you informed if there’s a recall on any of your products. They can also let you know when there are new products on the market that might be just right for you. 

If you have trouble paying for your supplies, talk with your healthcare team. They can advise you about what Medicare covers and where else you can look for help.
