I have noticed that no one has mentioned humidifiers.

People who have been diagnosed with diabetes greatly benefit from having a humidifier. I use mine at night when I can't control the environment. It is particularly important in the drier states.

It really makes a difference.

Thank You! This is my 1st 'Type 2' winter and some of my skin and my scalp have been driving me crazy — and I normally worry about somewhat oily skin. I had thought it was too much heated air though that's never been a problem before. One more thing I can thank D for.

Again, Thanks for the tip. Any tips on what brands are best?

I wonder if that is why winter is so much harder on some of us than summer. At least here in Florida, humidity is not hard to come by.

Never heard of this very interesting, I have a cpap machine and what I ahve done lately is put water in it, for moist air. but never really measured differences of numbers. something to look into.

When I lived in Palm Springs I very much appreciated my humidifier. Here on the Oregon Coast we pretty much have a natural humidifier so mine no longer gets much use. They do help if you need the humidity.
