Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time

Spring Forward.
Fall Back.

Just a friendly reminder: Don’t forget to change the time on all of your diabetes devices this weekend including your insulin pump, continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and blood glucose meters.

Long-acting insulin should be taken within 30 minutes of the regular time each day. When we were on MDI, we took about a week to transition to the new time, changing it by 15 minutes every couple of days. Ask your medical team how you should handle the time change with regards to injection schedules and basal rates.

And for those smart ass adult PWD’s who are also going to do their semi-annual lancet change, read my post “Why Having Your Child Change Their Lancet Isn’t Actually About Changing Their Lancet.”

Please remember that I never give medical advice. Ask your endocrinologist or pediatrician for advice about your own child. Make your own informed decisions for your own child.
