OK, so I'm going to be starting pumping in a few months, but there seems to me to be a flaw in the logic of pumping. Obviously there is some solution that I can not see, so I was wondering if any of you could help me out?
Insulin needs to be stored at between 0 and 28 degrees Celsius, or it gets damaged and begins to lose its potency.
The human body runs at 37 degrees Celsius.
If you keep your pump in your pocket, doesn't it get too hot and damage the insulin?
I actually had a pen get cooked in my pocket today because I forgot to take it out, when I remembered and took it out the insulin was already cloudy and full of floaters. This wasn't the first time this has happened to me either.
why won't the same thing happen to the insulin in a pump if I keep it in my pocket?
I'm going to ask my pump educator the same thing when I see her next, but I was wondering if anyone could help me out in the mean time...
