Road trip with D

  • Other than bringing plenty of supplies and possibly a temp basal for the long hours sitting in the car, any tips for road trips with D?

  • We need serious temp basals.  For more than 2 hours in the car we need at least 50% increase, sometimes more.  Other than that, all the usual  :)   Keep extra insulin in a cooler or take it in on every stop.  Cars get hot FAST and it will cook insulin in nothing flat.
