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
West Bloomfield Township, MI
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.
Werrington County, AUS
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.

I'm in desperate need of a blood sugar monitor for the day(preferably one touch verio,but really anything).thankss
How do u guys correct before going to sleep? For example im 192 now about to go to sleep. Im using novoRapid and lantus and it always scares me to correct before bed so i wont get a hypo while sleeping
Just a quick question to the type 1 diabetics. How long after a hypo does it take a person to get back to normal. My boyfriend had one 2 weeks ago and I think I'm pushing him a little.
I'm 19 and I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 13... Everyday I wake up I feel sick to my stomach like I'm going to throw up does anyone have any suggestions?
Hi guys, I'm in desperate need of... a Medtronic pump I can US for the weekend, child's stopped working thought it was getting shipped out and was suppose to be her today but now not until Monday
Hi does anyone have dexcom G4 sensors or a transmitter. Mine is about to die. And I'm like 2 months from getting my new insurance. If you could help out, I will before we grateful!! :)
Ok, I admit it. I'm a diabetic noob. Am I also in denial that I have yet to resign myself to sticking myself regularly for testing? Hell, I hate it when others stick me! Must I now do it myself??!!
How does everyone here normally treat their hypoglycemias? I'm a loyal glucose tab guy, but find I'm in the minority...
How likely is it to have a type 1 kid? I want to have kids but I feel like they are doomed to have type 1 like me. Do you have kids? Do any have T1 too?
My husbands birthday is coming up and we are going for dinner then he and our friends may venture elsewhere. My question is if you go out how do you explain the diabetes kit? Do bouncers even care? (Needles, lancets etc)
