World Diabetes Day 2021

Happy World Diabetes Day & National Diabetes Awareness Month!


In honor of World Diabetes Day, we've partnered with T1D warrior and artist Nicole Buchanan to bring you limited edition merch for the very first time!

Through this exclusive collection, we hope to create awareness around not only the importance of Frederick Banting's co-discovery of insulin but the importance of access to this life-saving medication.

These cozy hoodies, t-shirts, and mugs feature a striking portrait of Frederick Banting surrounded by a kaleidoscope of diverse butterflies. While the butterfly is an icon for the Genteel Lancing Device due to its gentle nature, this year it holds extra meaning for us. Revered for their transformative abilities, these gentle creatures symbolize change and progress for those living with diabetes.

Tag @mygenteel with your shirts, hoodies, and mugs and start the dialogue with your peers today. Here's to a future with better health outcomes for all!
