I have a a whole collection of various carrying cases and "pouches" that I've used over the years to carry different meters, syringes, vials, insulin pens, needles, and test strip containers. I'm very happy that using OmniPod means I have reduced that bulk down to just the PDM, a small lancet device, and the bottle of Frestyle strips. So I now use a soft-side black case that Lily provided at some point (about 2 inches thick, 8 inches long, and 3-4 inches wide). It is actually a little bigger than necessary for those three items, but the other cases I have are all either even bigger or won't fit the PDM.
So I'm curious about what other people use to carry their PDM and lancet/strips with them day-to-day...

I use my Myabetic case. It's a bit big and bulky, but it's all I need to grab and go since it's a wallet and case in one. :-)
Hi Rachel....which program do you use for your blackberry to look up carbs. I have a smartphone and looking for a program to do that also.
I use a smallish Pelican waterproof, lined hardshell case with my PDM, landing device, strips, hand wipes, Symlin pen and needle cartridges, and my Freestyle Navigator receiver. In the case that came with my Omnipod kit, I put my spare pod, insulin, and various wipes. Maybe it's overkill, but I hate to think of having to replace these pricey gadgets...
