    Sorry if this is an ignorant question for those well versed in these topics. My daughter was recently diagnosed with type 2.

    Just a quick question: apart from dehydration has anyone had any complications with sudden drops of bg levels, etc because of the summer-time weather?

    Just curious if there are any special actions I need to take to prevent bad events.

    Hi I have t1 and the hot weather giv s me sudden bg lows. I drop my insulin, but I also eat more, make sure I have sugar on me, more testing and I try to keep my body tem down as much as possible. It sounds lovely how you want to help which is a big help.
