One of the challenges of using diabetes technology, such as an insulin pump or continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is carrying the device with you. For those using a pump with tubing, you need someplace to clip or hold the pump. Pocket Innerwear has offered a solution in their T1D Techwear.
I know Q doesn’t always have a pocket or a belt loop to attach her CGM receiver. And as she’s gotten older, she has wanted to wear a waist pouch less and less. Sometimes she clips it to her supply bag (a purse she carries), but there are times during activities that she just needs the receiver on her and doesn’t have anyplace to keep it. What I like about the T1D Techwear tanks is that they can be worn as a layer (or by themselves!) and they just look like any other layer of clothing.
This summer the company sent us a new tank, great because Q has outgrown the one she had been wearing. Q chose the “Summer Special T1D TechTank” which has two cute paisley pockets. If you want a layer that’s more inconspicuous, they also offer styles with pockets that match the color of the tank, for instance white or black. They have styles for kids, men, and women including tanks and briefs. And if you have a tubed pump, the pockets have a hidden buttonhole for the tubing.
T1D Techwear with a pocket for insulin pumps and CGM’s can be purchased from the Pocket Innerwear website.
