Re: [IP] Insulin and getting hot

Jeff- I am a new pump user and was cautioned that if exposed to sunlight etc
the insulin in the tubing willdeterioate and be in effective. Reccomended to
wear a shirt etc and kep it covered from sunlight. I am not sure that body
temp would be sufficint to cause the insulin to be less effective.
