Affordable Tech Can Help You in the Fight Against Diabetes
While medications exist to help treat diabetes, each individual needs a custom action plan to stay as healthy as possible. Because every diabetic person’s journey is so variable, there’s no one-size solution for anything. Fortunately, technology offers users the unique opportunity to track what matters to them. You can receive timely advice on nutrition and lifestyle questions and take control of your diabetes — all with budget-friendly tech. Here are a few ways tech can contribute to your health so that you live your healthiest, sweetest life.
Choose the Right Fitness Device
For many people with diabetes, both type 1 or type 2, exercise is paramount. It helps regulate your blood sugar and can make your body more sensitive to insulin. But if you have trouble getting active, a fitness device can provide motivation and accountability.
A fitness tracker not only works as a tool for your workout regimen, but it can also help you monitor your health. Smartwatches like the Apple Watch detect falling incidents and activate an emergency system if you’re unable to get back up on your own. Other models like the Fitbit Versa 2 include a heart rate monitor and can keep track of what you eat and how much water you drink.
Even the ubiquitous smartphone is a nifty fitness tool. Furnish it with the right fitness apps, and you can pretty much exercise anywhere you want. For instance, you can get a portable stand to mount your phone on and fire up YouTube for a quick yoga session in your bedroom. And snag a few workout pieces from Anna PS; the built-in pockets allow you to keep your phone — or pump — handy during your exercise sessions and beyond.
Use Apps for Low-Cost Support
If you already have a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) or diabetic pod device, you may use apps to sync data and adjust your insulin delivery. Devices like the FreeStyle Libre communicate via your smartphone to report blood sugar levels and trends.
Beyond apps specific to your medical devices, other tools can support diabetes education and treatment. As the American Diabetes Association notes, checking your blood sugar is essential to effective diabetes management, so most tools include blood sugar tracking or charts. Noting factors like stress levels, activity, and foods eaten can help create a bigger picture of your health, too.
To help with tracking, check out free or low-cost app options like:
- Glooko, which syncs with your medical device, tracks exercise information, and provides nutritional information for reference (IE carb counts).
- BG Monitor, which helps track carbohydrates, calculate insulin amounts, and create reports you can share with your doctor or family.
- Glucose Buddy, an app and website that helps you track and report trends, record nutrition, and exercise, and communicate with other people with diabetes in forums.
Take Supplements to Help with Weight Loss
While severe weight loss can be a sign of diabetes complications, maintaining a healthy weight is crucial for people with diabetes. Sometimes, though, losing weight can seem nearly impossible. But for people with pre-diabetes or even the early stages of type 2, Endocrine Web notes even a 10 percent weight reduction can mean huge health improvements.
Continuing to check your blood sugar, managing your diet, and exercising are all smart steps toward better health (and weight loss). You can also add healthy supplements to encourage weight loss. As The Healthy explains, certainsupplements can help you ward off ailments while achieving a healthier weight. Omega-3s, for example, can reduce your risk of heart disease, which is heightened with diabetes. Extra fiber — like that found in psyllium — can help you manage blood sugar better, too. Supplements with high protein levels may also help you level off your blood sugar.
Whatever supplements you choose, note that affordability isn’t always an indicator of quality, so keep this in mind as you shop around. Of course, you should always consult your physician or nutritionist before adding a supplement to your routine since these can significantly affect your blood sugar.
While struggling to manage the condition can be emotionally draining, there are ways to make life easier. Harnessing the power of technology (and doing so affordably) can help make tracking blood sugar and reading labels not so intense. With apps, technology, and tools at the ready, you have a better chance of navigating this condition and not letting it hold you back from living the life you want.

Hey! I am a type 1 diabetic, diagnosed when I was 12. In addition to diabetes, skiing is a big part of my life. I have been skiing ever since me and my family moved up to Åre in Sweden. Two years ago I started at the Ski cross high school in Åre. This means a lot of training, Mostly skiing but also a lot of gym and fitness training. AnnaPS clothes is a life saver. It makes everyday life easier! I have had problems not knowing where to put my pump when I am training. With the Anna PS clothes it fits perfectly in the pockets and stay secure and is not bothering me. My favorite garment is the long-sleeved sweater, because it can also be used as an undergarment when I ski and for running and other activities when I want to be a little warmer.
Never let your diabetes stop you!
Lia´s tip to all diabetics is to never let diabetes stop you. It is a very tough disease to handle, but you can find your way to manage your diabetes. Get it to fit your life and not the opposite….
What Lia says about her insulin pump….
Lia has a Tandem T:slim insuline pump with basal IQ and use a Dexcom G6. She loves the possibility this pump gives her to use a close loop system. She tells us she is very satisfied and so nice to get help to stop the basal dose when she is close to get a hypo (going LOW). This is a really help during sleep and exercise.
Improved design, better than ever
New bigger front pocket – fits also your mobile phone
Firm – great support for your breasts
Better fit – adapted to regular size chartsWhat customer says…..

AnnaPS support dQ&A to make life with diabetes better
One of the Founder of dQ&A, Kelly Close, I’ve personally met a lot of times. I have seen her committed work at diaTribe and I highly recommend their great newsletter where I get the latest news within the diabetes area and a lot of useful tips.
dQ&A was started to collect information from diabetics so clients can design customer centric products.
I find this initiative great while we then have the possibility to share what we like and dislike, explain our needs, how we live, think, act and feel.
To get products on the market that really support our needs, we need someone selecting this data and transfer them to the clients making new products for us.
dQ&A is the only party doing this and that is the reason why I am supporting them. I hope you will fill out this survey today.
dQ&A was founded in 2009 by Richard Wood and Kelly Close. Richard has years of consulting and market research experience, and previously worked as an executive at Nielsen. Kelly has type 1 diabetes. She is a tireless advocate for patients (she also founded diaTribe) and a leading expert on the diabetes industry.
Their vision was to amplify patient voices, using rigorous and cutting edge research techniques. Other companies treated diabetes like toothpaste, or diapers—just another research project. But they wanted to go much further—to develop a deep understanding of what life was like with diabetes, and speak up for patients so they could make a difference./Anna, Founder of AnnaPS

Covid-19, the Corona virusI send you all my love and strength to you all!
It is a scaring time now when the Covid-19 is spreading all around the world. I hope you all feel healthy and have the chance to take care of yourself and boost your immune defense by eating lot of green veggies with restorative vitamins. Me myself focus extra on Vitamin D, Magnesium and Vitamin C and I find a lot of them in kale and fish.
It is also important to carefully wash our hands and use hand sanitizers Perhaps it is difficult to find this available in your shop nowadays, so I’d like to share a recipe on how to make your own easily (find the recipe and video here).
From diabetics all over the world I am getting reports about being quarantined. This morning I got the news that the UK is putting up a 12 weeks long quarantine for people with diabetes as being part of the risk group. This is really hard and this is a time we really need to take care of and support each other. I have seen people in social media sharing diabetes supplies and sending help to others. Together we stay strong.
AnnaPS runs the business as usual as we are just two of us in the company, live in a small village and have the possibility to easy spend our time in the nature, outdoor. We are taking extra care of all hygien expects. If we are getting sick we will close our business until we are healthy again.
Love and health to you all!

wash your hands
don’t touch your face
use hand sanitizer (get a recipe here to make your home made)
keep a distance to others
stay at home when you are sick
MAKE YOUR OWN HAND SANITIZER – REALLY EASY
You here find what you’ll need to make hand sanitizer at home. You might have several of these items around already, and if not, they’re likely more available than Purell is at the moment. We’ve included links to where you can get some of these ingredients online.
- 2/3 cup 99% rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol (in Sweden T-röd), for the alcohol
- 1/3 cup 100% pure aloe vera gel (or 1,5 tablespoon glycerol from your Pharmacy+ 1/cup water) for moistening effect
- Optional: 10-15 drops essential oil for smell
- Optional: some drops of coconut oil
- Bowl and spoon
- Empty liquid soap or hand sanitizer bottle
- Optional: Gloves
How to make hand sanitizer in two steps
Step 1: Mix the rubbing alcohol, aloe vera and optional essential oil in a bowl with a spoon. Be careful to keep pure alcohol away from your skin.
Step 2: Funnel the mixture into the empty bottle. Screw the pump cap back on and voila, you have hand sanitizer.
Making hand sanitizer at home: Warnings
As easy as it is to make your own hand sanitizer, you should be aware that rubbing alcohol in high quantities can damage your skin. Make sure you stick to the 2:1 proportion to keep the alcohol content around 60%. You can also use gloves while mixing and follow up sanitization with hand moisturizer.
And we hope it goes without saying that hand sanitizer alone isn’t going to protect you from getting sick. Wash your hands with soap and water when it’s available, and limit how much you touch your face.
We also would love to share this wonderful video showing how to make the hand sanitizer.

Let me tell you about my first months on a Hybrid close loop insulin pump!
Anna the Founder of AnnaPS and T1D since 1998, Pumper since 2009 have been testing the 670G Medtronic and here she share her experiences and some information of what is coming in the next Medtronic generation.Words from Anna:I am on the first commercial hybrid closed loop insulin pump system, Minimed 670G from Medtronic, since September and I am really surprised how big of a life changer this pump is for me.
Diabetes affects every area of my life, every day. I think about it with every bite of food, every change in schedule, every moment of exercise. Seems like I spend all my time planning, preparing and taking injections.
More than 9/10 people with T1D alter their insulin doses out of fear of hypos. I am one of them.
But for the first time in my life of 21 years as a type 1 diabetic I can relax some hours. I can trust my pump to doing the job for me! The pump stops before I am getting low and increases the basal when I am high.
What is the closed loop?:
Hybrid Close Loop insulin pump means the pump+cgm together manage your diabetes and the insulin pump stop before lows and increase the insulin delivery when high blood sugar. The goal is to optimize the Time in Range.
Note: Time in range use to be approx 51% fore people on MDI(insulin pen)+CGM and 55% for people on regular insulin pump + CGM.
My results – and on my wish list:My results are great. I have for the last 30 days had 79% Time in Range, no hypos and just 20% of my total time with blood sugar levels above 10. This is so much better results than I had before, and I don’t have to do so much work to reach these results. I am very satisfied.
But all is not perfect….-what is on my wish list?
- Bluetooth….so I can see my blood sugar on my mobile phone or smart watch, and get upgrades to the system software when they become available.
- Fewer finger pricks for calibration/pump security
- More insulin delivery when I am high
- Not have to be so precise in my calculation of my carbs before each meal
The good news is that it looks as if my wish list can be fulfilled already during year 2020. When the new Minimed 780G will be launched, all this will be reality. I am looking forward to test this new pump + cgm system. It sounds awesome!
What is coming?:The next pump, Minimed 780G, from Medtronic will be an Advanced Hybrid closed loop (AHCL) which means even less time for me to manage the diabetes, as the pump will help me even more. The new algorithm will act more automatically compared to 670G. And with an updated new version of CGM (Guardian) it is going to be much much more easier and less with fewer calibrations and finger pricks, almost none compared to today.
Minimed 780G is going to have the same design as 670G, but it is ok even if I would love to get a more smooth pump and I also would love to have pre-filled pump cartridges like the as Accu-Chek Insigth has. But a better closed loop is more important for me*).
The big trend in the diabetes world
”I am Looping” is growing so fast. This means you are building your own Closed loop system. I have met a lot of T1D´s all around the world doing this and they are so satisfied. You need an insulin pump with open data (I know: Accu-chek combo, insight, Dana, Omnipod and old Minimed pump) with a CGM system (I know Dexcom) and sometimes you need a transmitter (a Riley link). You use an App on an Android to manage the system. I have seen fantastic results and I really understand that people are enthusiastic. But, these systems are not secured by the Goverments, not certificated by CE or FDA, only the separate pump and CGM system are. For me it is great to choose an available commercial hybrid closed loop insulin pump system and not build one by myself.
670G suits in all AnnaPS pockets
It is really easy to bring the pump in the pockets integrated in the clothes. We recommend to sleep in panties or boxers not to be disturb by the pump during sleep and protect the tubing. It is also great to not have to hold the pump when leaving the bed.
During daytime our first choice is one of the tops to easy reach the pump when you need to manage the pump
AnnaPS Founder invited to EASD!
Focusing on closed loop
EASD is the biggest diabetes congress in Europe. The congress gathers diabetes professionals from all around the globe to present the latest research within. All big company are showing their technology.
Anna was invited to participate in two events, the Roche Diabetes Care event and a Medtronic event. In this newsletter I have made some short notices from the visit at EASD. Let us show you.
Colorful insulin pumps!
Kaleido are now launching pumps in more countries in Europe.
One year ago this pump from Kaleido was launched in the Netherlands. It has a short tube and is attached to your body. It is like a patch pump but with the very short tube. It is managed from a PDM (Personal Diabetes Manager). There are a lot of colors to chose from and every user can choose 2 colors. Guess what colors are most popular? Black and silver!
This pump is not going to be connected to a closed loop system.
What about OMNIPOD and T-slim?
Omnipod´s new PDM (hand unit)
The new PDM looks and feels like a mobile phone, it has a touch screen and is very intuiative to use. You can just use it to manage your pump. Omnipod is developed by the company Insulet and they are working on a closed loop system together with Dexcom. It looks like it will take some years until it will be a reality. The project to release a cloosed loop system is called Horizon.
T-slim and cloose loop available in Europe this year
This is good news. Tandem has developed a new software where a kind of close loop is available. The system is called Basal-IQ with the technology to stop the pump before you are going to low, to reduce the risk of Hypo. Tandem will, within short start to hand out individual codes to all their T-slim pump users making it possible to download the software.
A closed loop system acting when high glucose level seems to be presented in 2 years. T-slim will act together with CGM Dexcom
” I am looping” is a huge trend!
This is a movement within the diabetes world and there is a lot of diabetics out there building their own closed loop system. I have met a lot of them and all of them are excited. These systems are better than all accepted system by FDA and CE. FDA and CE regulations are hard to follow and require so advanced safety systems the medical companies can’t act as freely as the users want. There is so much to write about regarding looping and I really want to make a specific newsletter on this topic. I will try to tell you what was presented at EASD by diabetics with their own experiences.
Recharge your old CGM transmitter!
One of the Loopers is Renza from Australia Diabetes Association with the blog Diabetogenic (https://diabetogenic.wordpress.com) . Here she shows her recharged Dexcom CGM. There are people all around the world rebuilding the transmitters so they can be used again and again. So keep your old stuff or give them to people who need them.
Finally I met Ulrike Thurm!
One of the comitted people to looping is the Diabetes and exercise guru Ulrike Thurm from Germany. She held a speech about looping at EASD and she was so enthusiastic. Ulrike knows “everything” about exercising and sporting with diabetes, also extreme sport. She is the Author of “the Bible of sport &diabetes” and it is a fantastic book. I know Ulrike since a lot of year as she found AnnaPS clothes to be helpful during exercise. She was so excited she mention them in her book. And now I was so happy to meet here in RL.
Makes diabetes suck less – is Mysugr’s slogan. The people working there really understand the life of diabetes, most of them being Diabetics. Mysugr is today a Roche company and A good news is that Mysugr now is developing the functionality of the new remote control to the Accu-chek insight pump. I hope this will be released very soon because Mysugr is a really cool company and I look forward to see a fast remote control to this great pump. It is so easy to reload and it is giving stable bs.
This pump is open source means it can be used to build a own closed loop system.
Medtronic 670G pump
Since two weeks I am testing this pump and it is great. At the EASD I had the chance to see the evaluation of this pump. The pump is stopping before low and increase basal insulin automatically when high. Studies show the time in range for this pump is as high as 73% compared to diabetics with pump+CGM without close loop being 55%. However the best thing is that the time in hypo is as low as 0,6%. At this event I had the great opportunity to share the one year experiences from other users and I got really useful tips. Especially about how to manage miscalculation of carbs.
This pump is the only commercialized pump with closed loop system.
Virtual meetings and e-learning from EASD
www.EASD.org is the place where all information about EASD is available. Now is it also possible to see all speaches virtually and also take part in e-learning. You find all this on the page.
What a fantastic possibility!
Singlets, both black and white are back in stock!
Makes you feel extra beautiful. Both colors are available in size XS, S, M, L and XL. Go to the tops here
Anna, the Founder of AnnaPS shows how she use the singlet.
Let me show you how I use my singlets. I often carry it underneath my regular clothes. You can see my white singlet under my favorite white shirt. The black singlet I wear underneath another similar top without pockets. This makes it possible to use a skirt and carry my insulin pump. In both these situations, it is very easy and convenient to take out and put back the pump. With the two pockets, I can carry sugar in the other pocket. It is very convenient. I hope this will also be a help in your life with diabetes.
Finally our popular multi pack is back!

This is only valid for our unisex t-shirts, for all other adult styles, we have the same sizes as before.New improved fitThe neckline is a little wider and the arm hem is better looking, the arm width is also made a little bit wider. As you can see the arm length is made to cover a sensor, if you need it.Unisex style – perfect for both men and women“Our T-shirts for men are also a nice fitted for women, so we decided to call them unisex. Let me show you how I use the unisex T-shirt. This is me together with the Swedish team at the big Diabetes Congress ATTD in Berlin last week. I got a lot of attention for my unisex T-shirt wearing it under my jacket. People just love the print, a graphic T1D faces print on the T-shirt. It is good looking and convenient and a perfect work outfit.It is so easy to bring all my diabets stuff in a busy situation”

This day I have my insulin pump in one of the pockets and my Reader to a Freestyle Libre blood sugar meter in my other pocket. It is so easy to take out and put back my diabetes devices. I always close the pockets making all devices stay secure whatever I do. I really love both the black and white t-shirt with long sleeves.

Carry your diabetes devices in the pockets of your underwear,I share my favorite recipe again…..This piece of chocolate is my favorite candy during Christmas. So I really want to share it with you again, if you also would like to try. I like to make a lot of candy for Christmas and I make them solely from chocolate, coconut oil, nuts, dried fruits and licorice powder as sweetener. I love these candies and I feel much better when both blood sugar and body in balance. Please take a look and get inspired.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Christmas tips to all AnnaPS men
We asked men using AnnaPS clothes to share some tips how to make it easy to carry all necessary diabetes devices such as pump, pen, mobile phone, managers, readers, sugar etc. Here are some comments and tips for Christmas
I like the new fit
“For me it is so much easier when I use AnnaPS t-shirt with pockets. I have it under my shirt and preferably the white t-shirt. I love the new fit, much more comfortable in arm and neck line. The sizes are now larger and that is great. I use to carry my insulin pump in one pocket and the Reader to my Free Style Libre in the other pocket. It helps me easily reach all devices at all times.”
Peter T1D since 1998
So discrete and so easy
“The t-shirt is my favorite because it makes it so easy to bring my insulin pen and my mobile phone in the pockets. So discrete and comfortable and I don’t need to bring a case.”
Boy 17 years oldI always sleep in the boxers“I sleep undisturbed when having the pump in my boxers with pockets – I really need them every night! I like the very soft ones in Tencel but I also would like to get them with a blue waist band. The blue and coral red ones are on my wish list for Christmas .”Words from an AnnaPS customer, man 35 years with T1DBuy a gift card and get extra valueIt is not always easy to buy clothes to someone you love, without letting them chose by themselves.
