My son's dance instructor emailed me asking what more she needed to know about having a diabetic dancer. (I told her a lot of stuff last April, but she's been in denial, doesn't want to be responsible, blah, blah, blah.) I was cheered by this message; thought she was finally coming around. I told her a few things, including not having the room so blasted hot. (All said politely.) She wrote back this long defensive email about how she loves heat, a/c is bad for dancers, whatever. My husband and I just decided to drop it and didn't respond. Today she has her assistant email me and ask what the temperature in the studio should be. IDK! Fortunately, we have a cold front moving through and the heat index is only in the upper 70s today. (My son is there from 9-4:30 today.) But we have a lot of weekend work coming up when it could still get pretty hot.
He'll live. He might have a harder time controlling (and I've read explanations of how and why heat can make you go low because the body is having to work harder to cool itself or can contribute to dehydration if going high). But I cannot find a directive anywhere of how hot is too hot. Anybody?
We live in southwestern Virginia, so it can still get pretty hot and humid here for a while.
