Diabetics face a lot of problems in summer due to rising temperatures and heat waves. Sweating in the scorching heat causes the body to lose fluids and salts, leading to extreme thirst and fatigue. Fatigue caused by heat often makes it more challenging to maintain blood sugar levels. This can completely affect efforts to control diabetes.

Dr. Ashok Jhingan, MD and Director, Diabetes and Metabolic Research Centre, Delhi Dr Singh said, 'Maintaining a healthy routine is very important to control diabetes, but the summer season can be quite difficult. Due to changes in daily habits, diabetics may fail to take a diet suitable for their body and check glucose levels on time.

Diabetics are at a higher risk of dehydration during the summer season. This risk increases further when their glucose levels become uncontrolled. It is important to constantly monitor your glucose levels to manage blood sugar levels effectively.

The best way to keep yourself hydrated is to drink water
The heat waves in summer cause dehydration. Therefore, it is very important to drink as much water as possible. Even if you do not feel thirsty, you should drink plenty of water in this season. Drinking water regularly not only controls blood sugar levels but also flushes out harmful substances from the bloodstream. However, how much water each person should drink depends on several factors such as weight, age or what activity the person does. On average, a person should drink at least two liters of water a day.

monitor blood sugar levels regularly
It is very important to check your blood sugar level regularly during the summer season. For this, continuous blood sugar monitoring devices like the Freestyle Libre equipped with advanced sensors make it easier for you to keep your glucose level at the ideal level at all times, whether you are exercising or sleeping. These devices keep a close eye on your glucose level. If your blood sugar level has increased too much or fallen too low, they alert you accurately and timely. You should also keep an eye on its readings. And try to maintain your blood sugar level at the ideal level for 17 hours out of 24 hours every day.

Plan your workouts wisely
It is very important for diabetics to lead an active lifestyle. It is very important to protect yourself from direct sunlight and take care of hydration. When the weather is very hot, you should avoid going out and exercise or do yoga indoors. You can exercise in the open air in the morning and evening, but in summer you are advised to exercise in an indoor gym or at home.

Eat healthy foods
It is completely normal to crave for ice cream, cold drinks or cold drinks in summer. However, people suffering from diabetes should be careful and eat a balanced and healthy diet according to their condition. Adding high-fibre leafy vegetables, celery and Brussels sprouts to your diet can help control glucose levels. To strengthen your immune system, you can include citrus fruits like oranges, lemons and amla in your daily diet. These fruits are rich in vitamin C.
