"I haven't heard of someone ending less insulin in the cold. Actually I think my Endocrinologist mentioned that I would need more insulin in the cold weather. I might be wrong though. I find it hard to predict my own insulin requirements. I do…"

Insulin and cold weather

I live in San Francisco where the weather is generally mild, in the 50's - 70's. About a week ago, the weather dropped 20+ degrees and has been steadily cold in the 30's and 40's. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, I was getting lower and lower at the end of Day 1 of the cold front. Over the next day or so, I need FAR LESS insulin than usual. I have been using an insulin pump for just over 3 years and have NEVER had this experience before. As of the weekend, I am now dosing 40% less basal and 50%…See More

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend Amanda!!
California....so far away, but it feels like you're right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario. I'm a wife of 33 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children (one 28, the other 26), a grandma to 3 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer....I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!! Tell me a bit about yourself
and keep in touch, ok?
hugs....linda

Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
