Overall my blood sugars weren't any different than usual. Only one low for the entire week (which is typical). As far as meters/pump screwing up because of the crazy altitude - that never happened. My pump and meter were working just fine the entire trip and the only time I had to make adjustments was for the two hour time difference.
Speaking of time difference - it's funny to see how your body becomes so used to specific 'meal' times. Because of the two hour difference I found myself hungry for lunch at 10 a.m and eager to eat dinner at 3 p.m. Either way the blood sugars stayed under control and I didn't have too much of a difficulty carb counting etc.
So, now it is time to prepare for trip #2, or #3 if you count Ottawa. I have been living out of a suitcase this month, but I guess it's not much of a change from the rest of the year - coming home from college every weekend to watch hockey games. I am excited to go to a warmer destination this time and enjoy free meals and drinks and lay by the pool/ocean and get a nice tan!
Either way, May has been a great month!
