how does the summer affect your diabetes, do you find a difference in the sugar control? I have to give myself a lot lower dosage of insulin. Any idea why?

Hi,

I am no doctor whatsoever, and i most-probably have no clue what i am talking about, but i thought of a suggestion:

First of all, there is a web-site www.medhelp.org, on that site go under "diabetes", they have professionals that will answer you within 24 hours. Generally, for any questions concerning diabetes, exept for the one's that involve Halacha or any other Judaism-related questions, you will probably be more successful finding an answer on that site.

If this is the first summer that this happened, it can very well be something else. If it has happened already for a number of years: I recently read somewhere (can't remember at the moment where, but if i do remember i will post it) that the reason why people sweat in the heat is because heat causes your body somehow to work-out, i would suggest that it is for this reason that you are getting the low's.

Good luck!

hi. first of all is it possible that during the summer you are more active and that's why you need less insulin. if not, i know that when i travel i have to give myself less insulin. your body reacts different depending on the environment, tempurature, etc. All these sort of outside factors definitely play a big part in how your body reacts. But it's definitely normal and not something to worry about.
