Does sunburn have an affect anyone's blood sugar?? i'm light complected so i burn extremely easy. i try to either stay out of the sun for long periods or i wear something like spf 55 to keep from burning. a couple of days ago i was outside mowing a little longer than i expected and ended up getting a moderate burn on my arms and neck. the following day my numbers ran a little high, nothing too bad though. i vaguely remember when i was little the doctors telling my mom to keep me from getting burnt because it could affect my numbers. has anyone ever experienced this or heard of this??
