    In Europe, daylight savings time will end this Saturday. I know the same will happen in the US on November 5th.
    I already calculated the preshot hours so that after 12 hours I will return to the hour I'm most comfortable with, but how do you work with the +1 +2 +3 BG testings during that cycle?

    Thanks

    No need to respond, I worked it out :)
    I do hope that my post will remind those who forgot out the time change about it.

    For Leo, I don't vary his dose more than an hour. So this works fine with the clock shift. I'll test him around +6 or +7.

    I get hung up by this every time it changes! :arghh: I stink at anything involving numbers and calculations - I have a terrible time remembering which direction of the clock I'm supposed to go to work my way round the change.:confused::confused::rolleyes:

    Well the whole system of changing clocks is silly. I guess they did it to give us a sense of jetlag for those who don't like to travel.

    Silly? You don't live in a country where one island is a half hour off from everyone else. Only in Canada.

    Lol, I live in a tiny town that seems to be "geographically, two weeks away from everything"!

    Newfoundland Canada, The Rock! Since I was a kid I'd hear "Hockey at 7:00 in Toronto, 8:00 in Montreal and 8:30 in Newfoundland." It's a beautiful place, Kids in the hall! "I'm squishing your head".

    Maybe it would be easier to think about it this way if you're a summer person:
    When daylight savings end, you move the clock 1 hour back because you want to go back to the summertime, and in the Spring you move the clock 1 hour forward because you're looking forward to Summer (?)

    Spring ahead, Fall back. Some people adjust their dose 10 minutes a day for 6 days or 15min X 4. Whatever works without being drastic.

    Well who else does this?
    Keep another window open in Google open because I can never spell vetranarian, veteronaryn, veterinarian.
    Google "what time is it".
    What day is it?
    Is today garbage day?
    At least we don't have a Reply All button, been there, done that.

    A whole TV network devoted to the weather. That's messed up. I look out the door, smells like rain. Boot up a computer to check what colour the sky is?
