Health Tip: Controlling Diabetes During Hot Weather
Drink lots of water, and check blood sugar often

(HealthDay News) -- Hot weather can affect your blood sugar, so your diabetes may need a little extra management when temperatures rise.

The Cleveland Clinic recommends:

  • Drink lots of water.
  • Talk to your doctor about any adjustments to your insulin before you exercise.
  • Check your blood sugar more frequently.
  • Carry glucose gel, glucose tabs or a glucagon kit, in case blood sugar gets low.
  • Pack healthy snacks when you're on the go.
  • Store medications and supplies to keep them from getting too hot.
  • Sunburn can cause stress on the body and affect blood sugar, so take precautions to protect your skin.
