About Diabetes Feel Goods

Making diabetes a little more beautiful, that is our mission. We, Lieke and Nienke, know both too well that diabetes is not fun. We try to make it a bit more fun with nice accessories and cheerful products. With our products and online community we want to give you a positive experience for or through your diabetes; diabetes feel goods. Everything to make it a bit more fun, because ...


...Diabetes isn't fun but we can have some fun with it!


Nienke

In 2014 I started with Diabetes Feel Goods. As an (industrial) designer with diabetes, I missed beautiful products for people with diabetes. Every day I use with fantastic medical devices. In terms of functionality, they are amazing medical highlights, only: they look so ugly! Almost all of them are so boring and purely functional, but why aren't they just beautiful?

As a designer I thought: "something needs to be done about this!" We will offer beautiful and fun products for people with diabetes. Products that you can be proud of and that increase your self-esteem!

We design and produce some of the products ourselves and purchase another part from specially selected suppliers who, just like us, deliver high-quality and beautiful products for everyone with diabetes.

A few years ago I was looking for work where I could use the longest work experience on my CV: type 1 diabetes! I have had this diagnosis since I was 11, in 1997. We are now quite a few years further and I think I should call myself a veteran. I have always found it very difficult to manage my diabetes properly, and everything that I have to change about myself (testing, needles, my equipment) to do that responsibly. At Diabetes Feel Goods I saw exactly the way to make my diabetes fit me better! A short e-mail exchange and a nice cup of coffee later I was allowed to help Nienke.

I am always working on new developments in the field of type 1 and I like to try out new products myself! I have since started working with the #wearenotwaiting community and now I use the FreeStyle Libre with MiaoMiao, and OmniPod with Loop to automate my insulin delivery.
