Dress for Success When Wearing an Insulin Pump
We have all heard the term, “dress for success,” but when it comes to diabetes and you are required to wear an insulin pump, it may seem that dressing is no longer fun. When wearing a pump for insulin, it is possible to not only dress comfortably, but you can also look great regardless of the pump. Kids may feel depressed or upset that they need to wear the machine, and that it takes away from being able to have fun or to dress and wear what they want.
There are diabetes cases, meter cases, and insulin pump cases that you can wear that will not only grow with your little one, but that you can also add to in order to make them fun. You can get them with pre-applied or pre-printed pictures such as animals, or perhaps the logo of their favorite sports team.
You can also get the cases specially made with a special photo of your choice. It is important to be able to keep a positive attitude no matter how old or young you are when it comes to having diabetes. There are waistbands that you can get that are bright and full of colors, packs that are soft and comfortable to wear around the waist so that kids can still run around and have fun, and clothes that are just perfect for any occasion.
Of course, as we get older we try to add accessories to our clothes and color -code them as well. We want everything to match, which means that the insulin pump can look and feel out of place when trying to create that perfect look. However, when you choose the right packs and the right colors, you will be able to wear your pack and your insulin pump so that it simply blends in with what you are wearing. No matter if you are a man, woman or child, you do not want your insulin pump to stick out like a sore thumb.
For little ones, it can be even harder if they need to explain to their friends what they are wearing and what it is for. However, if they can wear a pack for their pump that is covered in fun animals, pretty designs or cool sports images, it can make it easier for them to tell their friends what they are wearing and why. The packs come in soft cotton fabric so they are comfortable. You can even get them with skulls on the cover for that young man in your life.
With a little research, you are going to be able to find just what you are looking for when it comes to comfort and style in an insulin pump pack and in clothing. Just because someone has diabetes, it does not mean that they need to feel uncomfortable in what they are wearing. It can be hard for young children who have diabetes and are trying to fit in. The right pack can make the difference.
