Diabetes Gadgets and Man Parts

An innocuous question came my way recently, out of the blue in a conversation about anything other than diabetes.

“Does your insulin pump tubing ever get caught up in your man parts?”

Well, yes. It does. At times.

As you can imagine, it’s not a pleasant experience. One that catches you off guard, makes you pep right up and stop everything you’re doing to make sure you don’t move a muscle the wrong way and make everything go from bad to worse.

It only takes a moment (as the Music Man tune goes), but it’s a very important one with a lot on the line. This is, the Danger Zone (cue Top Gun soundtrack here).



Insulin pump tubing is not evil, by any stretch of the imagination. But when you’re a guy and you tend to tuck your tubing in with your shirt, and wear the pump on your belt, these issues are bound to surface. Especially if you roll with the longer tubing lengths.

Thankfully, I have never had anything more… uh, unpleasant… occur when the tangling happens. The noose is tight, but catastrophe’s prevented.

I’m sure the future kids are grateful, just the same.
