[IPk] Beware the bath!

Thanks to whoever it was mentioned
hot water increasing the absorption of insulin.
My daughter felt very strange after a bath
this morning - and I discounted it -
but on her second complaint of being
sick and dizzy did a routine test -
because of hearing the above comment -
and she was below 3.  No wonder
she felt bad.

 The only explanation was that the hot
water in the bath speeded up the absorption
of the bolus she had just taken!

Thanks to whoever gave the warning -
that was a close one.
