Let’s round out the week by sharing our best diabetes tips and diabetes tricks. From how you organize supplies to how you manage gear on the go/vacation (beach, or skiing, or whatever). From how you keep track of prescription numbers to how you remember to get your orders refilled. How about any “unconventional” diabetes practices, or ways to make diabetes work for YOU (not necessarily how the doctors say to do it!). There’s always something we can learn from each other. (Remember though, please no medical advice or dangerous suggestions.)
Sorry I missed yesterday, life got in the way…
One thing we do is have the Thirty-one Timeless Beauty Bag to put all the supplies she needs with her and stick that in her book bag. This has an extra site change supplies, extra insulin (in the Frio – which we also love), extra lancets, test strips, glucagon, and some smarties for lows. This way we just have one thing to check to make sure its all there before we go.
Also we are flying for the first time since diagnosis and I am a little worried about the process. So if anyone has any advice or tips or links to good posts, please share in the comments.
