This Sparked Me!

Heat makes your blood sugar more difficult to control. You should test your blood sugar often and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Heat can also affect medications, glucose meter, and test strips so dont leave them in the car or in the heat. Stay in Air-conditioning & remember water is a diabetics best pal.

    Was glad to read this. This may explain why I am having trouble with high Blood Sugar readings the past couple of weeks. I am in air conditioning most of the time but the air is out on my car and it is a twenty minute drive home. I definitely need to drink more water.
Keep the tips coming. I need all the help I can get.

    Although this is true and very helpful, thank you for sharing... But also remember that the Sun provides MANY vitamins that are SUPER important to Diabetics. Diabetics should be sure to get atleast 10-20 mins a day of sun to the body to absorb those natural Vitamins. Look it up its very important!
