Longtime PWD Dan Patrick reviews the FRIO Insulin Cooling Case -- a necessity for diabetes travel!



  • no need for ice packs, refrigeration, electricity, or a power supply
  • the cases are reusable and only require cold water for re-activation
  • most of the cases are a size that can be placed into a pocket
  • the cooling cases come in six different color choices and seven different sizes


  • units have to be soaked in water to activate (not always convenient)
  • smaller sizes are convenient for travel, but also small enough to be misplaced
  • it's essential that the cases stay in contact with air to "breathe"
