Hi everyone :) does anyone else find their sugar levels drop more now the weather is warmer / hotter ??

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
Dodge City, KS
Mine go high instead :(
with type 1 diabetes since 2013.
In warm weather my son's bs drops dramatically.
when the summer starts you get hot/swetty so heat and sweat is a form of carb burning so yes u will suffer a drematic decreese in ur bloods.

Is anyone on an insulin pump and using novolog insulin? I'm currently using apidra insulin in my pump but now my insurance decided not to cover it anymore so now I need to switch FAST. My insurance covers novolog so I was wondering if this insulin is any good? Has anyone had any problems with it?
