[IPk] Re: Heat (sun)

Hi Marion

I went on a touring holiday of Malaysia this time last year.  I kept my 
spare insulin in a fridge, and put it in a Frio pouch between stops.  I took 
a pump pouch but didn't use it.  I just made sure I kept the pump out of 
direct sun, and the pump and insulin were fine.  Having said that, Malaysia 
was so hot, we spent quite a bit of time in air conditioned 
hotels/restaurants/shopping malls!
