Insulin Pump Belt

I thought I would share what I found. I got one last week and I absolutely LOVE it! I wish I woulda found this years ago. For the record, I use a Minimed 715 pump and it fits perfectly.

Re: Insulin Pump Belt

Thanks for the tip. Being of the "girl" persuasion, I usually wore my pump in the side band of my bra. I'd just reach in (though the neckline of my shirt, or from underneath) to pull it out if I had to. If it wasn't convenient I usually just put it in a pocket.

Re: Insulin Pump Belt

I used to use one of those waist belts to anchor the pump under my nightgown when I sleep. Lately I've just been hooking it onto the neckline.

Since I usually wear slacks, I either stick the pump in my pocket or, if no pockets, clip to waistband.

There are so many devices that really everyone should be able to find something that works for them. It's really nice when you find something that works especially well for you!
