Diabetes Month Photo a Day – Day 29

Day 29: Travel

Diabetes doesn’t take a break when you are traveling. When traveling you need to pay attention to time zone changes. These changes can affect when your insulin is delivered, and if you’re on a pump it can affect your basal rates.

An increase in activity and excitement can cause blood sugars to be more unpredictable. While we were on vacation we noticed that my daughter’s blood sugars seems to run more on the low side.

Diabetes never takes a break, even while you're on vacation.
