[IPk] Re: Question for Teresa



Hi Iain

The insulin in the pump gets quite warm if you always wear the pump
against the skin, but that is unlikely to be the case. If you wear the
pump on your waistband during the day, it's the temperature of your
trousers. The greater risk comes from leaving a pump in direct
sunlight, like at the beach - it can get much hotter than body temp
that way.

 If you tend to see a deterioration in your diabetes control or
occlusion alarms towards the end of a full reservoir of insulin, even
with a fresh cannula, perhaps you would want to change out the
reservoir and tubing sooner. How many days do you currently use each
reservoir/tubing length and is your control worse or do you get
occlusion alarms towards the end of that period?
