Diabetes And Summer: How To Beat The Heat

Diabetes and summer: How to beat the heat You're smart to be thinking ahead. If you have diabetes, you're at greater risk of heat exhaustion, which occurs when you're exposed to high temperatures for a long period of time and don't replace the fluids you lose. Follow these tips to stay safe in hot weather: Prevent dehydration. Both hot weather and high blood sugar can cause dehydration. So it's doubly important that you drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. Water is best. Avoid alcohol, sugary beverages and sports drinks. Protect yourself from the sun. The heat index can be up to 15 F (9 C) higher in full sunlight. Stay in the shade as much as possible when you're outside. Wear a hat and sunscreen too. Wear light, loose-fitting clothes. When humidity is high, your sweat can't evaporate as well. Wear clothing that allows sweat to evaporate easily. Plan outdoor activities to avoid the heat. Schedule outdoor activities during the cooler hours of the day, such as early morning or late evening. Alternatively, consider walking in a shopping mall or department store. Check your blood sugar. When you're out in the heat, consider testing your blood sugar more often. Peggy Moreland (ex Continue reading >>

    Still trying to figure out if non diabetics get spikes after eating and how high they can get... I would assume anyone can get a spike if they eat too many carbs too quickly for their cells to be able to react to... I have found people supporting both sides, but not much from the scientific community... would love to see continuous monitors on tons of people that have passed a morning and OGTT... but I found someone on another forum saying this about the subject... which really confuses me O_O It makes me think the person had a spike before the one hour mark and shot down before they were measured.
    "Sorry, a bit of thread hi-hacking I am a non-diabetic, bmi18-19, active female. My Fasting tests are around 70-80, so normal. OGTT, even with 75g of glucose only took me to a high of 115mg/dl, no spike or reactive hypo. But food gives me spikes from 175mg/dl for just 1 green banana, 210 mg/dl for 2 small slices of toast and butter, and up in the 230 mg/dl if I dare to have a pudding, even without the main course first ! First, is this normal? Second, why do these foods cause these spikes when 75g of pure glucose causes no rise at all, after all banana is only around 20-30g of carb, 2 slices of toast about the same."
    I'm going to keep searching for something, anything showing what actually happens point for point after a "normal" person eats... whatever "normal" is... :/

    Johns Hopkins hospital talking about the effects of high blood sugar in diabetics and non-diabetics... Why would they say that if "normal" people can't get spikes or go above the "120" normal...
    "The researchers found that Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)—a measure of long-term blood glucose level—predicts heart disease risk in both diabetics and non-diabetics. An elevated blood glucose level is the defining feature of diabetes, but until now it was unclear whether elevated glucose levels contributed independently to increasing heart-disease risk."

    this should be close enough

    Here are what doctors currently believe to be non-diabetic readings:
    Fasting blood sugarunder 100 mg/dl (5.5 mmol/L)
    One hour after meals under 140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol/L)
    Two hours after meals under 120 mg/dl (6.6 mmol/L)
    If you can do better than this, go for it. At a minimum, The American College of Clinical Endocrinologists recommends that people with diabetes keep their blood sugars under 140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol/L) two hours after eating.

    Agree with Dr.Semion. I would also consider having you get checked for Auto-Immune conditions and get to root cause of acid reflux. All gastrointestinal disorder do effect skin and joints.

    Could be an allergy or even a fungal infection. See your Dermatologist for allergy patch tests and a KOH fungus check. Use mild skin cleansers such as Cerave or Cetaphil and moisturize frequently. I like U-Lactin and Amlactin as moisturizers, and they are over the counter.

Shelley Gorman, from the Telethon Kids Institute, gives us an overview of her research (DRWA funded) into light and the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes. There is a small section unavailable at the start due to a technical issue.

New Study: Sunlight May Help Prevent Diabetes And Obesity

New Study: Sunlight May Help Prevent Diabetes and Obesity New study suggests that sunlight exposure can slow down the development of obesity and diabetes. Researchers of the Telethon Kids Institute in Perth, Western Australia, together with their colleagues from the Universities of Edinburgh and Southampton, found that mice that had consumed large amounts of food experienced a deceleration in weight gain, when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. The experimental animals showed fewer warning signs of diabetes, such as abnormal glucose levels and insulin resistance. At the same time, vitamin D, which is produced by the body after exposure to sunlight and has been shown by numerous studies to have many beneficial health properties, did not appear to play a role against diabetes and weight gain. According to Dr. Shelley Gorman, lead author of the study from the Telethon Kids Institute, these findings are important as they suggest that casual skin exposure to sunlight, together with plenty of exercise and a healthy diet, may help prevent the development of obesity in children. The benefits of sunlight exposure were associated with nitric oxide, which is produced by the skin after exposur Continue reading >>

    I was borderline back in May but then it went way down below 90 then my husband took it a couple tines and I was back to borderline around 115 and 120. I'm not going to have it retested just yet, cause it does fluctuate I believe with the menopause. I asked my PC about it being related ti thst and she said no. I don't believe her. She wanted to retest my blood when I tokd her about sine of my readings. I figure uf it gets into tge 130s or 140's then I'll go back to her about. I feel fine. Not thirsty or going the bathroom all the time so think I'm still borderline yes. Like you I'm treating it by exercising and controling my diet better.
    Just wish there was a menopause specialist I can go to - to tell her all my problems, and she wouldn't think I was crazy woman.

    When testing make sure in the morning test if its between 90 -110 its fine after meals its will go up depending on what you eat as long as it goes down without meds I talk to many doctors and nurses almost everyday due to my sister being in hospital I ask questions all the time one doctor said even if it would go as high as 180 after meals that's normal but coming down without meds is the key just keep an eye on it

    I am finding the more weight I lose, the higher the morning readings....crazy!! I don't have any of the physical symptoms, guess that is why I am sceptical about the diagnosis but thinking about it kicks my anxiety into drive...what if I am being too complacent?? Be nice to find a specialist who could actually help.

    When I test in the morning its between 82-90 but that's after I lost the weight it use to read like 117 in the morning so I think walking daily and not do much carbs will help maintain healthy readings good luck I know this crazy thing called menopause is for the birds grrrrr

    Yes eat lots of carbs and do lots of leg lifts and muscle building exercises. I gained most of my weight back. Even though I am overweight. I like fitting back in my big- girl clothes.

    I do believe that it could be hormone related. I have never been diagnosed with diabetes and every time I go to the ER they ask me if i am and when they test me it seems to come out fine. Once I went to the ER with an episode and it was up high, but it went down on its after they tested me a while later. It can be pretty tricky. It seems to be going up and down lately. This hormone mess is all complicated. Too bad there isn't enough research on women for this stuff.
