Hi everyone! With a lot of us having extreme summer temperatures lately, I wanted to get everyone’s tips for staying healthy and taking care of your T1D while outside in the warmer months.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to the beach and was rather neglectful with my sunscreen and got a really terrible sunburn. My blood sugar was over 600 for a few days straight, so I changed my basal to run at twice as much as usual, and then had to give huge correction boluses all the time, but upping my basal rate really helped.
What do you all do differently during the summer to stay safe and keep your blood sugar in check?
