I'm just back from the Children with Diabetes Friends for Life conference. It's held every year. In Orlando. In July. It's a fantastic conference. Except that you're in Orlando. In July. Hahahaha.
The first year I went, we spent a day at the Magic Kingdom. I woke up at 3am with a blood sugar well over 350 because I didn't realize all that time in the heat waiting in line for rides made my insulin spoil. It was not a fun experience. Since then, I do usually ask for a Guest Assistance pass or put my pump in a Frio case to make sure my insulin doesn't get overheated. Also, an upside to being forced by my insurance company to switch from Apidra to Novolog is that Novolog tends to hold up better in the heat than Apidra did. At least, that seems to be my experience.
With summer now in full swing, I'm interested to hear more tips on keeping your insulin cool and safe when spending time in the sun. We are headed to our friends house for a day in their pool this weekend, so I'd be thankful for any good tips you might share!
