I have been reading messages in our community on how weather affects blood glucose levels. A few of our members mentioned Mediclim. I went to their web site I found Mediclim interesting but lacks substance. I joined the 90 day free membership to give it a try.
What bothers me is that they have no supporting data on climate/health relationship. I went to the diabetes section and found a general rehash of common knowledge that we who have diabetes already have. There is nothing to indicate how weather changes affect diabetes or why. In seem that in a few of the diabetes sections the Mediclim disclaimer is more extensive than the information provided. I also noted that there was only one alert in October and one in November yet the weather here in New Jersey has been a roller coaster ride from a blizzard to yesterday’s 72 degree temperatures. It seems to be that if this is a real science that there would have been more alerts.
Does anyone in our community have any information of substance regarding the relationship between climate and health (specifically diabetes)?
