Happy day all,
Sun is not my husband friend (he is the diabetic) well @ lest not in the summer. We live in Dallas which most people know that is is rediculously hot. His sugar drops & fell like he is about to pass out stomach gets upset & head starts to hurt. I love the winter & like the air on 24/7 so we are a good match (thank you God). We can't even sleep w/the heater on in the winter (will wake up w/migraines) both of us. Now what I usually do is inthe winter is get up before him warm the apt then wake him up.

Working 4 Jesus, & Loing it,

One thing I can tell you what it partly is. It's the tempurature of the body or something like that , which has to do with it. I like things more COLD than I do when it is HOT or too warm. even in the winter time I now like it COLD. and belive me as skinny as i am with no FAT left on me ( poor me ) It has to be cool for me or i get pains and irritated and stressed wich leads back to my darn depresssion. You might also watch out that you might have dry skin which looks like dry sweat on your body. but you were not sweating at all.
Well that is what is happening to me anyway when it is too hot. Don't forget to watch out when it is hot like that and when we get stressed like that we can pass out quickly. At least i do anyway.

It depends on how your body handles stressful situations, yes sunlight, especially excessive sunlight creates stress on the human body, and thus diabetes.
Everyone and their body reacts differently to the same conditions, so your reaction will be different from mine and the next person.
