I have been noticing that I get more lows (Hypos) now since the weather here in MA. Is this common among those of us on insulin?

I apologize if I made this question too generalistic, but what I meant was actual hypoglycemic episodes, rather than better blood sugar levels. Sorry Folks.

Wow that is weird…I just found out that I am type 1 and I take insulin. I have noticed that my sugars are lowers the last couple of weeks too. I was hoping that it was me doing something right, but now maybe it is the weather…or (perk) maybe it's both…I live in the south but we are having a wicked cold front right now…(I LOVE IT)

I don't know about type 1, but several of my friends who are type 2 have all noticed that our numbers are lower or better these past few weeks. I wondered the same thing.
