Re: [IPk] Re: Frio cases



Darrell

The frio wallets are brilliant for transpoting your insulin. I have been on 
hols with the pump, and use them if there isn't a fridge where you are 
staying.

I have got 2, one I keep in my hand luggage and the other in my hubby's hand 
luggage -loaded up with insulin.

Have a nice hol !

Su Type 1 pumping since Sept 05
