Hello All,

My fiancee is having very high blood sugar since last 15 days or so (having atleast one reading in 300) since she joined this Body Care Unit where they provide her with heat therapy and Sauna massage for weight loss. Also, at the same time she has started with Homeopathic treatment for Alopecia. She says that her hunger has also increased during the day.

Her blood sugar was under decent control before she started with these activities but now she has to take more injections and more insulin :(

I feel either of these is responsible for her unexplained high blood sugars.

What do you experienced people have to say?

Thanks in advance for your replies

Regards,
Inderjot

It sounds like these changes have some effect on her Diabetes. I know that extreme heat does affect our blood sugar. I don't know what kind of heat therapy she's receiving but if it's sauna type of heat where you sit in it for awhile that will affect her blood sugar. Examining the recent changes is a good idea. Life changes does affect our blood sugars.

If she is taking medications (including so Homeopathic), those could cause high blood sugars. I believe steroids may be prescribed for Alopecia, and steroids are known to cause your blood sugar to skyrocket.
