    Sorry about the moaning but wanted to share how much I hate the heat. I'm dreading summer as soon as it gets even a bit warmer my bg levels drop without warning. When it's cold I always get a hypo warning around 4.3 but today the sun's out, start feeling a bit, funny check levels, 3.6 arrgghhh bring back the winter. I feel better already getting that of my chest x

    My basals have already dropped by a 1/3rd since warmer weather... (East England always lucky!!) and next will be my bolus.. By June my total daily dose of insulin will be one third less than during the winter...

    The only thing to do is to keep testing and lower doses if need be..

    I certainly can't moan at warmer weather, I love it.
