Re: [IPk] New way to test BG (rumour)

My boyfriend carries what I call his "manbag" everywhere he goes, and he 
doesn't have diabetes. He hates carrying anything at all in his pockets (as do 
I, but then I often wear clothes with no pockets too). It's a beige coloured 
highly expensive fully waterproof bag that goes diagonally over his shoulder, 
and holds his phone, wallet, book, water, often random food items ("school 
bars" are the latest - sort of dried fruit bars) and usually a million useless 
things like pieces of string. He's even been known to carry a Scrabble word 
book in it for days at a time, just because "you never know". Oh, and it often 
has all my spare diabetes kit (meter, glucose tabs, spare infusion set etc,) 
and my wallet and phone too, if I don't want to carry my handbag :-)
We tease him about it, but it's very useful!
