@hils I wouldn’t say wrong, just depends on the distance really. As @mustard said, Europe is probably easy enough to leave it on UK time but states and or further could mean 3/4/5am wake ups for Lantus which isn’t too great in my mind.

I’m not sure if it would make it easier for pump users, maybe someone could pitch in with more knowledge than me?

If you are on a variable dose on a pump (say double during the night than the day,) then I would imagine have to adjust else when you got abroad you might for example end up having your double dose through the day rather than the night – your body should only take a couple of days to realise it’s all changed, my DP took two days to adjust to rising in the night US time instead of the late evening when it still thought it was on UK time.
