Permutations and Combinations

A very hot day
A very hot day

Yesterday, here in Melbourne, Australia, was a classic example of how so many things can affect your BGL (Blood Glucose Level).

I’ve mentioned in the past about stress, illness, exercise etc, and how they all affect your BGL. But yesterday, which was extraordinarily hot, provided a clear example of how the weather can affect the level.

The previous day was all quite standard for me; standard food, standard exercise, standard everything. And my BGL test yesterday morning was 4.6 – 83 in the USA.

Then we had the extreme weather yesterday. It was mighty hot, take my word for it, oh, and the photo at the top of this story. That is 42C – about 106F.

And my test this morning, after having a standard day regarding food, exercise, stress etc? 10.3 – 185 in the USA.

So when comparing apples with apples, where the only thing different was the temperature, the affect was 10.3 compared with 4.6.

Finally, just to ensure that it remains elusive and unknowable, that is the affect for me yesterday. It might be different next time or for the next person.

That is T1D as I have lived it.
