Diabetes and Heat: Safety Tips
Check glucose meter and test strip
packages for information on use during times of high
heat and humidity. Do not leave them in a hot car,
by a pool, or on the beach.
Heat can damage insulin pumps and
other equipment. Do not leave the disconnected pump
or supplies in the direct sun.
Get physical activity in
air-conditioned areas, or exercise outside early or
late in the day, during cooler temperatures.
Use your air conditioner or go
to air-conditioned buildings in your community.
