I have been asked to be a speaker at a meeting on the topic of Emergency Preparedness. They asked me to do a presentation on how diabetics should prepare in case of long time power outages and disasters. I am honored to do so and have much to draw from because of all the great input and ideas so many of you have shared with me over the years.
My experience is in Type 2, but I would love some additional input from those of you who are type 1.
What types of insulin doesn't require refrigeration?
What do you do to naturally keep your glucose levels low?
How long can you store your insulin without refrigeration?
What foods help you the most?
How long would your pump work if the power is out?
What is in your car kit or work kit?
Best places to get your glucagon kit and other supplies?
Any little tips would be appreciated to add to my presentation. I will let you know how it goes.
