Daylight Savings: Set The Clocks On Your Diabetes Hardware Back Tonight!

So Daylight Savings Time Starts this Sunday morning (November 3rd,) at 2a.m  - And if you're like most of us, you'll set your clocks an hour back before you go to bed tonight.
And while I wish we would just keep the clocks set to where they are because I hate getting up in the morning when it's still dark out - It's not up to me. 

With that being said, be sure to set the clocks back one hour on all your diabetes hardware including, but not limited to insulin pumps, CGMs and glucose meters - including your backup meters. 

Smart phones, iPads and computers will change their own clocks. 

And while you're changing all the clocks on your D hardware, don't forget about the clocks throughout your house, on your stove and in your car - And don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke alarms!
