Thank goodness I asked about hot tubs at my last appointment with the nurse educator. She informed me that the danger of sitting in a hot tub while wearing a pod is not that the pod glue will melt off of my body, but that the insulin could end up “boiling” which I assume isn’t a good thing. Everyone knows a hot tub doesn’t get hot enough to boil anything (unless you put a lot of effort into creating a hot tub cauldron), but I understood her danger warning.
I am going to a party on Saturday evening that will involve hot tubbing. What will I do? Wear the pod on my arm, and sit so my bicep is out of the water. This is the plan. However, if that doesn’t work, then…I’m going to boil some insulin. Because hot tubbing is very important.
