AnnaPS climbing uphill in Norway

Today I was climbing uphill cloose to Oslo.It was great exercise and it took about an hour. I started on 13,5 in bs and reduce the basal to 25%. During this hour I took approx 40 gram rousins and when I came up my bs was 7,3. I was happy and today my diabetes worked out in a good manner.

During the climbing I really love to carry the insulinpump, glucosemeter, sugar in the tanktop and sport bra with pockets from www.annaps.com. It was easy to take them out and measure and check during the walk. 

It is so great here in Norway and I am really looking forward to come here during the Winter. They have 1000 km perfect tracks here just north of Oslo. I promise, I will come back!

Vita kalsonger till män med ficka - White Briefs for men with pockets for insulin pump


Äntligen finns det vita kalsonger med fickor för pump för män. Dessutom har vi tagit in dem i vår populära kalsongmodell med dubbla fickor. Perfekt till sommaren!

Så nu finns kalsonger med dubbla fickor i lager igen, nu i färgerna vitt och svart. Samma material, härlig stadig tencel som andas och transporterar fukt.

Vad är det då som skiljer mellan kalsonger med en ficka och med dubbla fickor?

Förutom antalet fickor så är det på insidan av fickan som är skillnaden. 

Kalsonger med en ficka har en öppning på insidan av fickan där man enkelt stoppar in pumpen och kan alltså stoppa slangen på insidan av kalsongen utan att koppla ur den från infusionsetet.

Kalsonger med dubbla fickor har ett (nu större) knapphål inuti fickan. För att placera slangen på insidan av kalsongen behöver man koppla loss infusionsetet och trä slangen igenom hålet. Det går enkelt det med. 

Vi önskar er alla en riktigt fin Kristi Himmelfärdshelg.

Finally, we have white briefs with pocket for men. And in our popular model with double pockets. 
Now there are briefs with double pockets in stock again, this time in the colors white and black. The same material, lovely steady tencel breathable and transports moisture. 

What is it that difference between briefs with a pocket and double pockets? 

In addition to the number of pockets so it is on the inside of the pocket that is the difference. 

Briefs with a pocket has an opening on the inside of the pocket where you can easily stop the pump and place the hose on the inside of the briefs without disconnecting it from the infusion set. 
Briefs with double pockets have one buttonhole inside the pocket. To place the hose on the inside of the briefs you need to disconnect the infusion set and wooden hose through the hole. It's easy too.

Sunshine and insulin pump - it is time for bikini

Do you carry insulin pump and have problems to find a good way to carry your insulin pump during the Summer? Perhaps my story can help you to find an easy way to feel beautiful and relaxed with your pump in the Summertime.
I love the Summer, it is a warm and healthy time. To protect the insulin and also find a way to carry my insulin pump is necessary. Walking around in the garden or just stay on the beach, I carry my insulin pump in the bikini with pocket for the pump from AnnaPS. Sometimes bikini model in boxer or sometimes with long legs. I really like to make it simple. I don´t have to be afraid of dropping the pump, it´s stays in the pocket. And it is discrete, nobody even see the pump and I like the design. I think the pocket and the popper is a nice detail, making the bikini unique. And I am always handsfree! I can do whatever I want without thinking of my insulin pump. That is freedom for me. Always have all hands free, that is perfect.

When I need to take a bolus or something else it is easy and quick to take out and in the pump in the pocket. It is easy to close the pocket with the popper to make sure the pump stays in the pocket. I use to place the needle low on my stomach because then I can have the whole tube inside the garment and protect the insulin from the heat and sunshine. It is a small opening inside the pocket to make it possible to have the tube inside the garment.

I don´t swim with my insulin pump because it isn´t waterproof. When it is time for me to go into bath, I take off the pump from the coupling. Let the pump stay in the bikini pocket and just switch to another pair of bikinipanties. The pump stay easy in the pocket and there are no risk it will fall out from the pocket. I use to place the bikini panties in my bag, protect them from the sunshine. There are also perfect protection of the pump from sand. No sand get into the pocket and the pump. When I have been swimming I put on my bikini panties with the insulin pump in the pocket, assembling the coupling and start the  pump again. I don´t have to hold the insulin pump when I put off and on the garment. The insulin pump stay into the pocket when it is closed with the popper.
This is simple life for me with my pump in Summertime.

Ofcourse I have to watch up regarding the heat and the insulin but I use to find a solution for that.

Would you like to tell me your story regarding insulin pump and Summertime? Please let me know.
