I'm talking about a heatwave! For those of you living in the Mid West & The East Coast, the holiday weekend forecast brings with it a heatwave that's FLAME ON, and according to my sources, will be sticking around for a bit.
Personally, I think it's way to early in the season for that - But unfortunately, it's not up to me.
With that being said, here's your yearly reminder (and regardless of your geographical location) to make sure you keep an eye on your insulin's bake rate and the fact that your insulin may indeed get skunky.
For those of you wearing an insulin pump, fill your insulin reservoirs at half mast during warm weather so that if your insulin does go skunky, your not throwing out 180 units at a time. Also, if you haven't already done so, look into getting a Frio for both your pump and your insulin bottle/pens, NOW.
Skunky insulin is no fun - So be prepared and have a great weekend - And don't forget to wear your sunscreen!
