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.

About DESANG Ltd
Sue Marshall, founder of Desang Ltd (desang.net) says, "I was diagnosed with type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes in 1972, when I was five years old. As I had to carry around various bits and bobs to help control my diabetes, I wanted something practical but professional to house it all in, and hence I designed two carry cases – or kitbags – and haven’t looked back. I’ve been a member of Diabetes UK most of my life, and wanted to be able to help raise awareness and support funding, so I approached the charity to support their work and raise funds via each kitbag sale.”

Some people are buying a kitbag to organise themselves. Others, to organise a partner or a child and some are buying both models. Many find them very useful for holidays or business travel. Having a professional looking bag not only makes going through customs less of a hassle, but it also fits in with a working lifestyle.

The company was set up in 2004 by Sue Marshall, who has had insulin dependent diabetes since 1972. She designed the product, sourced the manufacturer and the funding. Since the website was launched, the kitbags now sell worldwide in increasing quantities and word of mouth is spreading.

Global Diabetes Stats**
• Worldwide, 240 million people have diabetes, projected to rise to 333 million by 2025.
• Six people die because of diabetes every minute and the burden of late diabetic complications is huge.
• The cost of diabetes is 130 billion euros in Europe alone: the single most costly diagnosis consuming 10-15% of healthcare budgets and rising rapidly.
• The International Diabetes Federation (Facts and Figures, 2004) says that diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of vision loss in adults of working age (20 to 65) in industrialised countries.
• It is estimated that 2.5 million people worldwide are affected by it and 74% of people who have diabetes for 10 years or more will develop some form.
• With more than 240 million people worldwide living with diabetes today, within 20 years, this number is expected to grow to 380 million. Children are not spared from this global epidemic, with its debilitating and life-threatening complications.
• Type 1 diabetes is growing by 3% per year in children and adolescents, and at an alarming 5% per year among pre-school children. It is estimated that 70,000 children under 15 develop type 1 diabetes each year (almost 200 children a day). Of the estimated 440,000 cases of type 1 diabetes in children worldwide, more than a quarter live in South-East Asia, and more than a fifth in Europe.
• Type 2 diabetes was once seen as a disease of adults. Today, this type of diabetes is growing at alarming rates in children and adolescents. In the US, it is estimated that type 2 diabetes represents between 8 and 45% of new-onset diabetes cases in children depending on geographic location. Over a 20-year period, type 2 diabetes has doubled in children in Japan, so that it is now more common than type 1. In native and aboriginal children in North America and Australia, the prevalence rate of type 2 diabetes ranges from 1.3% to 5.3%.

Diabetes for editors
1. Diabetes is a "chronic" condition
2. Diabetes can be managed
3. Diabetes is on the rise

1. Diabetes is a "chronic" condition
The following information was taken from the website of the Long-term Medical Conditions Alliance (LMCA), based in the UK. February 2004.
LMCA is the umbrella body for national voluntary organisations working to meet the needs of people with long-term health conditions. LMCA's vision is of a society in which people with long-term health conditions have control over their lives and can live them to the full.

The proportion of people living with long-term medical conditions is rising, with one in three people in the UK suffering from a chronic illness or disability. As the population continues to age, and the number of older people grows, the incidence of people living with one or more long standing conditions will also increase. In the US, it is estimated that people aged 60 and over, have on average 2.2 chronic conditions, with long-term disease responsible for almost 70% of health care expenditure.

Definition of chronic disease: The US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention have defined chronic disease as "illnesses that are prolonged, do not resolve spontaneously and are rarely cured completely".

The Long-Term Medical Conditions Alliance (LMCA) believes that any explanation must additionally encompass an appreciation of the effect that long-term conditions have on people's emotional and social well-being; and the opportunities available to improve a person's quality of life, even when there is no cure for a particular condition.

One of the aims of LMCA is to sustain and further develop high quality self-management programmes for people living with long-term conditions.
This information shows that self-administration is a vital part of good health, physically, mentally and emotionally. A kitbag which has all the management tools in one place, is a great asset for those living with diabetes as a long-term condition.

2. Diabetes can be managed
The following information was taken from Diabetes UK on February 2004.
Although diabetes cannot be cured, it can be treated very successfully. Knowing why people with diabetes develop high blood glucose levels will help to you understand how some of the treatments work.

Blood glucose levels
When sugar and starchy foods have been digested, they turn into glucose. If somebody has diabetes, the glucose in their body is not turned into energy, either because there is not enough insulin in their body, or because the insulin that the body produces is not working properly. This causes the liver to make more glucose than usual but the body still cannot turn the glucose into energy. The body then breaks down its stores of fat and protein to try to release more glucose but still this glucose cannot be turned into energy. This is why people with untreated diabetes often feel tired and lose weight. The unused glucose passes into the urine, which is why people with untreated diabetes pass large amounts of urine and are extremely thirsty.
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.
