Description

A perfect gift for any Diabetic, whether Type 1 Diabetes, Type Two Diabetes or one of the lesser-known forms - particularly those with a tendency to over/under treat their hypos. This is a hand painted wooden box, filled with a selection of treats for when your blood sugar is low.

Available in any colour you choose, and personalisation is available on request (include a message at checkout to confirm wording).

The box has a magnet catch, making it easy to open when coordination is not your strong point. Inside is a card listing the calculated carb values of each item, and how many of each item equates to the 15-20 carbohydrate recommended by the NHS to treat a hypo. This takes away the need to calculate carb values at a time when speed is needed, and your brain will not let you work out a relatively simple sum.

As a Type 1 Diabetic I know that if I'm not sure how many of a certain sweet or hypo treatment I need to eat when my blood sugar is low, I'll sometimes just eat them until I feel better. Whilst this brings you out of the hypo, it raises your blood sugar too high. It can take hours to correct and make you feel even more unwell. On the other hand, failing to eat enough and undertreating the hypo can also cause problems. The aim of this product is to help you aim for the middle ground.

All of the items contained within the box are available from supermarkets, and can therefore be easily replaced, or you can of course replace with your own favourites instead!

I am happy to tailor the box contents to you; items can be substituted on request (assuming they fit in the box).

Box measures 9cm x 14cm x 5cm.

Available in various colours and finishes; happy to provide a colour sample on request. Examples shown are in metallic green, metallic purple and metallic gold. If you would like a colour that is not listed, please select "Other: Message Me!" from the drop=down list and include a message at checkout, or contact us via Etsy messenger.

Ordered this piece for my son who wanted a special box to keep his teeth in. (The tooth fairy inspects and returns his tooth with a note as he wants to hold on to them.) Lovingly made, with the lettering expertly applied. The box is sturdy and travels well under the pillow as it heads to the tooth fairy, who then returns it the next day. I recommend this artist.

Please include a message to us at checkout, or use the "ask a question" link on the product listing. Alternatively, contact us by email at livy_rae@yahoo.com.
Most of our items take two- to three weeks to make, as we operate outside of office hours only. Smaller items like our Tibetan Silver Bookmarks have a shorter turnaround; the turnaround time for each item is shown in its respective listing.

All items are sent by second class postage in order to keep the cost as low as possible. If you would like to receive your order quicker please contact us before ordering, as faster postage can be arranged on request (at an additional cost).
Absolutely! I am happy to make any changes needed to make sure you get exactly the product you're looking for, whether this is changing the standard wording, the colour, or something else.

Please note, however, that I am not able to offer any changes which potentially infringe copyright or trade mark law; I may be able to suggest appropriate alternatives
In short, it depends what you have ordered! All of my items are made to order, and for most items, I order supplies to fulfil your order. I delay ordering these supplies for 24hrs after receiving an order, and if you would like to cancel in this time, I am happy to cancel and refund in full. If I can cancel my supplies order, I am happy to refund your order, however, if I am not able to do so, I will only be able to partially refund your order, minus the cost of those supplies. Please note that this will usually be where an order requires personalised cut wood, which I am not able to re-use for another purpose. Thank you for your understanding.
