    I know I'm not the only one who has blood sugars running higher when it's hot out. With (northern hemisphere) summer here/on the way, it's happened a few times again already. I'm wondering if anyone has any tricks for keeping sugars from going high when it gets hot out. Would love some useful tips!

    I'm ok in hot weather, but it is important to keep hydrated so drink plenty of water.

    Probably not much help to you, but I've never liked intense heat, so I keep a slight airflow through the house and close all of the curtains that are allowing the sun into the house .. changing that as it moves from back windows to front ones. I keep out of the sun as much as I am able, and wear light, loose clothing. I love sunny days ... don't get me wrong .. but not hot sunny days!
