I'd appreciate some feedback...
We're seven months in on our T1D journey with my son. We got told from the outset to always wash hands before each blood test. Generally this has been fine, and 99% of the time we manage this.
However, we're finding more and more when it's becoming more of an inconvenience and dragging out the process when my son wants to keep this quick. Also we're currently carrying a lot around with us for this - baby wipes, tissues etc.
I appreciate thoughts from more experienced members.
Does washing hands make a difference all the time?
Are there any practical ways to deal with this (hand sanitiser?)?
Is this something we can relax about?
Thanks in advance...
