Press Release Summary: Desang diabetes kitbags now available in the US from

Press Release Body: Brighton,United Kingdom,February,16,2008 -- Desang sells kitbags
for people with diabetes - estimated at more than 2 million people in the UK today,
but 20 million people in the US. The kitbags keep everything in one place, making
living with the condition just that little bit easier. Resembling a Filofax, these
are properly designed carry cases where people with diabetes can keep their
equipment at home or abroad making the chore of looking after your diabetes a little
bit easier.

Kitbags mean that diabetics can carry all their diabetes management equipment with
them easily and safely, making it possible to achieve greater blood sugar control.

Desang kitbags come in three models and a variety of colours and finishes. The
Classic model contains everything required to monitor and administer type 1
diabetes, or type 2 diabetes treated by insulin. The Slim model is ideal for those
who only use one insulin during the day. The Roll-up is the 'whopper' and is great
for long trips, pump users, or for those who just seem to have a lot of stuff to
carry around to manage their diabetes.

Feedback has shown the kitbags to be very popular for travel in particular. New
models are available in luxury leather and microfibre.For more information, contact
