Welcome to Spring, where it’s hot, it's cold, it's summer one day and winter the next.
We are having our first spell of warm weather this year. It is gloriously sunny and warm... and no rain. This little bit of sunshine gives everybody all sorts of excuses to be outdoors because we have been hiding away from the rain and greyness for months.
The temperature increased by more than a couple of degrees. And then … So did the number of low blood glucose events/hypos I've been having.
Not only that but I took a figary to spring clean during this warmness. I didn’t planned it, of course, and on this rare occasion, I didn’t think about my diabetes. It needed to be done and I had the motivation, so I just did it.
I don’t know how many glucose sweets I topped up by or how much chocolate I ate to prevent hypos. Or how many extra centimeters I added to my hips:-(
Temperatures go Up, so insulin doses should come Down.
