Share the (non-medical) tips and tricks that help you in the day-to-day management of diabetes. Tell us everything from clothing modifications, serving size/carb counting tricks to the tried and true Dexcom-in-a-glass trick or the “secret” to turning on a Medtronic pump’s backlight when not on the home-screen (scroll to the bottom of this post). Please remember to give non-medical advice only! (Thank you Rachel of Probably Rachel and Kelley of Below Seven for this topic suggestion.)

It's Friday already! I have had great pleasure in sharing 5 days worth of posts with the DOC :)
I've also made an effort to stop being a lurker and start being a commenter on other blogs, so if you are visiting this blog because I left a comment on yours then welcome!
I'm really looking forward to reading some of the life hacks that others have but will share one of the biggest ones of mine..
Pump on a belt.
When wearing a dress or any kind of clothing, wear a high waisted belt. Thread the pump tubing out of one of the arm holes of the dress and hook it onto the belt.
I feel like this should be a given but haven't really seen it discussed much or offered as an option in thread etc.
I don't have anything else but am excited to read up!
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
