How to Carry your Tandem Insulin Pump and Supplies

Why is it important to carry your Tandem Insulin Pump?

Carrying your Tandem Insulin Pump is crucial for individuals with diabetes who rely on this device to manage their blood sugar levels. The pump delivers insulin continuously, providing a convenient and efficient way to regulate glucose in the body. However, it is essential to carry the pump properly to ensure its safety, functionality, and ease of use.

What are the recommended ways to carry your Tandem Insulin Pump?

1. Insulin Pump Cases: Invest in a high-quality insulin pump case specifically designed for Tandem Insulin Pumps. These cases offer protection against accidental drops, bumps, and scratches. Look for a case that provides easy access to the pump's buttons and screen, allowing you to make adjustments without removing it from the case. Sugar Medical Tandem T:Slim Gel Skins offers the protection your pump needs. 

2. Belt Clips: Many Tandem Insulin Pumps come with belt clips that allow you to attach the pump securely to your clothing or belt. This option provides convenience and accessibility, ensuring that the pump is always within reach. Make sure to choose a belt clip that fits securely and comfortably.

3. Waistbands and Pouches: Another popular method is to wear the pump using waistbands or pouches specifically designed for insulin pumps. These accessories offer a discreet and comfortable way to carry the pump, allowing you to tuck it securely against your body. Look for waistbands or pouches made from breathable and moisture-wicking materials for added comfort. Sugar Medical Adult SPIbelt® and Sugar Medical Kids SPIbelt®  are the perfect fit for your Tandem pump. 


4. Pocket: Your tandem pump is small enough to carry easily in the pocket of your pants during the day or in the pocket of pajama bottoms.  This makes it convenient for quick bolusing.  We suggest using a silicone protective cover for the Tandem t:slim to help protect the pump while in your pocket.  The silicone provides protection to the device and screen from bumps and falls. Sugar Medical Tandem T:Slim Gel Skins are popular and come in an assortment of colors to choose. 


Additional Tips for Carrying Your Tandem Insulin Pump

- Avoid exposing your pump to extreme temperatures, such as direct sunlight or freezing conditions, as it may affect its performance.

- When participating in physical activities or sports, consider using a sports band or armband to secure the pump firmly.

- Always keep spare batteries and supplies with you, especially when traveling or spending extended periods away from home.

- Consult with your healthcare provider or Tandem Diabetes Care for specific recommendations on carrying and using your insulin pump.

Remember, proper care and attention to carrying your Tandem Insulin Pump will ensure its longevity and effectiveness in managing your diabetes.
