Re: [IPp] water park



Maybe you could talk to your doctor about taking Lantus for that day. Then 
you wouldn't have to worry about high blood sugar and ketones. You could 
just reconnect to bolus for meals and corrections. You might want to reduce 
the amount of Lantus to less than her usual basal rate if you are going to 
be running around at a waterpark all day, something to talk to your endo 
about.
Good luck!
Cathy
