'Just Wrap Me in a Dryer Sheet'

Ever wonder what the deal is with static electricity playing mindgames on our insulin pumps and CGMS? Well, so have I. My Type 1 mom of 52 years shares her story about this issue and what pump and CGM companies have told her. Check it out over at The Diabetic’s Corner Booth.

Michael,
A tip I read to keep static electricity from building up on clothing, particularly an item like pants that tend to stick to one’s sock’s during the winter months, is to close a small safety pin into the hem. Apparently that will help to keep the static away. Problematic though in that you would need to remember to remove the pins before washing. Nothing worse than having little metal safety pins rusting in the hem of your clothes.
