Re: [IP] Having a hot tub

We have a hot tub.  My sixteen year old will start the pump next Wednesday.
 Just wanted to say his blood sugar always drops significantly when he uses
it, so he needs to eat extra snacks when he uses it now.  I'm sure he'll
need to make adjustments when he's on the pump.
