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 Sue Marshall: 01273-389193 or 07989-562999 email@example.com or see more at http://www.desang.net
