Ancient Diabetes Camping Secret
The next great thing about gold bond is to use it as a pre-sweating event. Don't use it before swimming because you will just be a dough ball. I am talking about your under pits and also that elusive pump site. Have you ever had someone tell you to put antiperspirant deodorant on before applying your infusion site to get it to stay on longer? If you have heard that from anyone it would be from someone who has never don it because it doesn't work. Antiperspirant deodorant wont allow your infusion set to stick to your skin. What I have found to do is of course IV-prep and then once your site is on, then use antiperspirant deodorant around your site but, don't touch your site. Then I put gold bond powder all over my body to look like a ghost and that will usually keep my site on for the entire day of sweat filled fun and then change your site out afterwards. Now remember (here is my disclaimer) I am not a infusion site specialist, nor do I possess a degree in infusion site management so see a professional infusion site specialist before doing this. This not a perfect system but it helps if you are a sweat monster like I am in the summertime. The trick also is to bring your sham-wow towel and dry off often and re-apply gold bond.
