I am a ride/roller coaster junkie! If there is a ride in site... I am on it! (only exception would be the Gravitron... holy hurl!) My kids do not fall far from the tree when it comes to thrill seeking rides either.
However, I was reading a newsletter that I received from Animas. This thought would have never crossed my mind, so I thought it was important to share with all the other pumpin ride junkies.
COPIED FROM THE ANIMAS NEWSLETTER...
Are you planning a trip to an amusement park? Remember to take precautions to be sure that your pump is protected during your trip. Very powerful electromagnets are sometimes used on "free-fall" amusement park rides. Pumps should be removed and not taken on these "free-fall" types of rides. High gravity forces can be experienced when riding on some roller-coasters. It is recommended that you disconnect (NOT just suspend) your pump while on roller-coaster rides. Contact your health care provider for further recommendations regarding possible changes to your insulin needs at amusement parks.
I guess this is why I SHOULD always read the instructions?!?!
