Daylight Saving Time to Fall Back

Scott Benner

It's that time again and whether you are a fan of the practice of Daylight Saving Time (I thought Saving had an S at the end until today) or not, it's about to happen.

In 2017 most of our watches, clocks and appliances adjust themselves but there are still a few items in the world that aren't connected to the Internet and much of your diabetes technology falls into that category. 

Don't forget to adjust the time on your meter, continuous glucose monitor and insulin pump this weekend.

The person that came up with daylight saving must have had a child with type 1 diabetes, because who else considers two in the morning to be a viable time to accomplish something? 

Daylight saving officially ends this year at 2 a.m. on November 5th but you can adjust your D-tech anytime before you go to bed. Be cautious, some insulin pumps will suspend bolus calculation assistance for a period of time after your adjust it's clock - plan accordingly.

If you want to learn more about Daylight Saving there is a quick video and detailed blog post over on National Geographic that you may enjoy.
