Sick Cycle Carousel..

Humming the song by Lifehouse...

Heat and humidity are killer on my bloodsugars.  Generally I am low 2x times or more a day when I'm in the heat, sometimes have super low BG numbers, like, ahem, a 35 or low enough where 35 carbs don't do much more than bring it up to 66.  Then the liver kicks in, decides to shoot out some glucose and then I go high, then I bolus to correct that high, then I go low 'cause it's hot or I'm not eating much--'cause it's hot and apparently didn't need so much of a bump.  I'll try better today and tonight.

Makes you dizzy just thinking about it.

Haha, I know how you feel Kate :) Often the same thing happens to me when I'm out in the sun. I guess something about being out in the heat draws more sugar out of some people than others.
