This week I’ll be participating in D Blog week.
Diabetes Life Hacks: Share the (non-medical) tips and tricks that help you in the day-to-day management of diabetes. Tell us everything from clothing modifications, serving size/carb counting tricks to the tried and true Dexcom-in-a-glass trick or the “secret” to turning on a Medtronic pump’s backlight when not on the home-screen (scroll to the bottom of this post). Please remember to give non-medical advice only! (Thank you Rachel of Probably Rachel and Kelley of Below Seven for this topic suggestion.)
I’ve been trying to come up with something for this, but three weeks in I have can’t think of many hack we would know. A few things we do that may or may not be right and work for us in the long run:
- Stock up on single serving peanuts for snack at school (11g)
- I bought a plain black crossbody purse for carrying supplies but she prefers taking it in her lunch box to school, she will have to use the purse for field trip next week and other times we go out.
- Not to overdo pepperoni (or any free proteins)
- My daughter carries her log book with her too so she has all her number with her, I log them daily to the dr./hospital site. We’ve been looking for a good app to do this but haven’t found one yet.
Otherwise we just keep plugging along.
I will enjoy reading other hacks though.
