Re: [IP] Hot tub
We have a hot tub at our house and use it a lot. I just got my pump today (YEAH!). I'll let you know how the pump and hot tub work out for me. Give me a little time to get used this pump thing first.....
> It doesn't seem like that long, but it's been almost 2 months since I've been in our hot tub - i.e. since I got my pump. It's obviously not exactly a priority for me. I am pumping humalog, so I expect that I would be most successful just removing my pump after a bolus for the approximate length of time I'll be off. I use the bent needle sets, so reinsertion is no big deal. I'd appreciate any words of wisdom
> Take care,
> p.s. Friday's workout went well - I didn't turn up my basal until about 1/2 hour before I started (instead of 2.5 hours) and I actually increased my sliding bgs for about 11/2 hours. It was just one of those days where I was low most of the day. The hour and a half of respite was nice. I haven't gotten used to exercise increasing my bgs though, and it was a little difficult to take that step.
