glucose meter, and what is in your "diabetes purse"

By November 13, 2011 - 9:50am

What glucometers do you use? It is always so difficult to go out and take just a small cute purse because I have to take my meter, glucose tabs/other treatment for a low and something to stabilize once I'm back in range, and an extra infusion set for my insulin pump. If you have type 1 diabetes, do you carry a blood ketone meter with you (if it is different from your regular meter) or urine ketone strips in case of highs when you are not home?

What do you keep in your purse to help you as a person with diabetes, but also try to be able to remain somewhat fashionable (and without taking the kitchen sink when you leave the house!)?
