where people touched by diabetes help each other.

What do people do about insulin in pumps getting hot? Had an issue where I was out for a day in the heat and by midday the insulin was dead. Had 8-12 hours of very high bsl.

I haven't had this happen yet (starting pumping Winter and only Summer now here) but I believe there are cool packs you can get to put them in?

I have a frio cool pack but it doesn't weigh up against riding a bike all day in over 40 c. Just wandered what other solutions are available.

Could you give your pump manufacturer a call and see if they have any recommendations?

Look into Frio. It's like what 26 c there right now? You could get a gel pack for your pump put it in security to where the gel pack won't leak. If you carry a Frio, will help for shots if needed.

what you could do is use lantus and your pump. store your pump in a cold pack and carry it so it stays cold and connect when bolus is needed. more info: http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/clinic/untethered.htm
