Janis gave you a great reply the only thing I will ask is do you test your blood sugar levels? what numbers are you seeing? and how long after eating.


Good luck

Hi Grant,


Heat can cause blood glucose levels to fluctuate more, but that doesn't sound like your issue.  Your body is not responding correctly to the environment (hot flashes in cold rooms).  This means you may have diabetes-related neuropathy, a form of nerve damage that can develop when a person's blood glucose level runs high for an extended period of time, such as years or months.  This could also explain the odd impulse you have to urinate quickly for no apparent reason.  Your body is sending and receiving incorrect messages.  Mention your symptoms to your health care team and do what you can to maintain your glucose level in a healthy range.

I know when  there are changes in the air that can happen.      I would think seeing a dcotor might be a good thing.
