Low tech pancreas transplant



I was doing an image search for a diabetes handout at work the other day when I came across this beauty.

The photographer has quite cleverly knitted a pancreas-shaped pouch to carry all of her diabetes paraphernalia around in. Clever because:


  1. Anyone who can knit is clever in my book

  2. The bits and pieces all together perform the function that the pancreas should be doing in the first place.

  3. It also shows a particularly good sense of humour. Like one commenter said: "You just have to use humour in life sometimes, don't you??"


If you or anyone you know has diabetes you might be interested in visiting Diabetes WA or have a look around for your local diabetes support group.
