Daily Piece: Sticky Adhesives to Battle Summer Heat

I am back from vacation. I had a great problem solving conversation with a person living with Type 2 who wears insulin pump and CGM this week. She was frustrated that her infusion set and sensor would not fall off due to working out in the heat and sweating. What to do? Clean the area with alcohol or IV prep wipe (let it dry) then apply either antiperspirant (solid or spray) then wait 10 minutes before inserting infusion set. Additional options include Skin Tac and Mastisol which create a sticky feel on skin.

  1. Someone told my daughter for her 9 yr old son to wash area with Dawn dishwashing soap first – it worked ! Make sure it’s good & dry then apply.
