Hi everyone :) does anyone else find their sugar levels drop more now the weather is warmer / hotter ??
Staten Island, NY
Believe it or not your more active in the summer. My daughter can play outside for ten minutes and go low. Your body is used to reserving energy to keep warm, try carrying a small snack like nuts
Mine does or they get pushed up just have to do regular blood tests

Mine have been lately but I'm just a mess, lol. I thinks it's for a couple of reasons. The weather is nicer so we get out more. ( less sitting at home grazing and more exercise. )
Living with type 2 diabetes since 2013.
Mine have fallen - although I've been adjusting my insulin dose up over the last week - I'll be keeping an eye on them in case they get too low.

It's getting colder here in Australia. But yes, my sugars go up in winter because you eat to keep fat stores in winter for warmth

For those that take insulin with your meals, how do you go about taking it when you're out at a restaurant or other social gatherings? Do you take it out in front of everyone or do you try to find a secluded spot to take it? How does it make you feel when you take it, knowing people are curious?
#gbdoc flying abroad for 1st time since T1 diagnosis. GP wants £18 to write a letter so I can carry meds on flight, anyone else had this?
just curious what other people keep in their cars for possible reactions. I tried glucose tabs but they go bad in summer heat. Now I use fruit wraps.
