Re: [IP] Flying for first time with pump!



8/5/00

Don't know if I've just been lucky so far, but the only issue I've had in
flying with my pump is remembering to change the time once I land in a
different time zone to make sure my basals don't get messed up. Lesson
learned -- pack pump supplies in carry-on baggage, just to be safe!
