The Diabetes Museum Wants Your Stuff!
There’s a lot to be gained from studying history. We can learn what worked and what didn’t. It inspires innovation. And it can give us a greater appreciation for how far we’ve come.
To that end, we at Integrated Diabetes Services (IDS) are creating a Museum of Diabetes Treatment right here in our office.
We already have some seriously outdated stuff, but there’s always room for more! We’re especially interested in:
- pre-meter blood/urine testing equipment
- pre-1990 insulin pumps
- vials of obsolete insulin (such as Lente or Illetin)
- stones used for sharpening syringe needles
- old diet plans
- anything else that puts the current state of care in the proper perspective
If you have anything to contribute to our Museum of Diabetes Treatment, please send it to:

Hello! Are you still looking for these items? I found my dad’s stash of supplies he couldn’t part with before his death and would love to pass th along for a good cause!
We are pretty full on storage space at the moment, We recommend reaching out to your local JDRF chapter to see where they may be needed or who in your area is accepting donations.
