|Ice Bar, Madrid.|
What with all the excitement of going to the Ice Bar, I forgot one very important thing: I have diabetes.
Question: What happens to insulin when you walk it into what is essentially a massive freezer?
Another question: What happens to blood testing kits when you try to use them below a certain temperature?
Yep. That happened. This definitely makes it's way up to the top of my list of diabetes-related fails, without a doubt! I didn't even think about it until it got to 9.30pm (the time I take my Levemir) and then it hit me that I'd been carrying it in my handbag in this massive freezer! Luckily, it wasn't too bad, but even so, I have now binned both cartridges just to be on the safe side.
It's a times like this that I question how I'm even still living! Like the time I was hypo, and was downing what I though was apple juice, but actually turned out to be sugar free apple squash (which explained why the hypo wasn't getting any better), which is now number 2 on my list after tonight!
It's a good thing natural selection doesn't seem to apply here...yet, anyway!
