When my bs levels are high, I usually feel warmer than other people in the room. It doesn't matter if its very hot or freezing cold. The thing is, this seems to be a fairly new occurrence (for me.) I know it can't be menopause. I just turned 29!
Just thought I'd put this out there.....
For me, my temp. gets warmer when my bs levels are low and when extremely low I begin to sweat. I never noticed my temp. get warm when bs is high. I have had type 1 for 40 yrs. (0 complications so far).
Your post made me curious so I looked online. Couldn't find the right info from a medical source, but there was this post a couple years ago from another diabetes site.
When my blood sugar is low, I get a cold sweat, but not really "warm". Recently, I have noticed that when my sugars are higher, I get warm, like "microwave" warm. From the inside out. However, I have to also take into account that sometimes it is not my sugars, it is that certain time during the month.....

You know what Christina, I never realized if I get hot or not when I am higher. I know when I am low I feel hot and sweaty....
@Jenna: It is definitely something to look into. Other people have commented when I begin layering or taking layers off when I get cold. From the other posts I have seen, not too many people have experienced it with high bs.
@Gina: I never really noticed it until a few years ago. I see my endo soon. I will mention it to him and see what he says. I wonder if it could be some kind of hormone issue........?
I am wondering too! Let me know what he says!
I will, Gina. In fact, I'm experiencing this high blood sugar/high body temp problem right now! I know its related to Homeostasis, but that's about it. I haven't found much relating to this issue on the Net.
I am used to the temp changes but have been type one for over 27 years. If you know check sugar and correct for the high.
