You'd have thought I'd thought of this ahead of time...but I didn't......
We're traveling cross country, camping our way from the East to the West, down the West coast, then back across from the West to the East, over the next four weeks, with four kids, one of which (our son, age 9) has T1. And, he just started pumping in May, so I'm still learning all the ins and outs. And, I thought I got everything covered before we took off this morning....till we crossed our first time zone and realized that changing time zones are not accounted for by the PDM (he's on the OmniPod).
So, my gut is telling me to keep William's Pod on "home time zone", because it will make record keeping and reporting (which we'll be doing frequently from the road) much simpler, and not confuse the "time between boluses & meals". There's no Lantus to adjust (thank goodness), but I'm not sure how his body is or isn't going to adjust to different time zones, and possibley screw with all those basal and bolus and correction segments we've worked so hard to program over the past two months.
Any practical advice based on travel experience? Our WiFi availability will be spotty the next few weeks, so please bear with me if responses are slow :)
P.S. Yes, I AM going to try to reach our Ped Endo tomorrow by phone to see what they say.....but wanted some "pro" advice as well :)
