hi @PumpkinFairy9 hot things like sauna, steam rooms, and hot tubs can have an affect on blood sugar. If I have insulin on board, a hot room like a steam room can cause a drop in blood sugar but as long as i know in advance I can deal with it. For some people, a hot tub or sauna can cause a rise in blood sugar. There is no way to predict, so I would just test more in new situations.
I can’t comment on getting a massage, but you can assume that it might affect blood sugar and so you have to test more.
as far as removing tech, a massage can work around an infusion site or a CGM sensor… no worries there.
I like steam so I built a steam room in my house. It overheats you so your heart beats faster, and I’ve attributed my drop in blood sugar to that increased heart rate. For me, this only happens if I have IOB. anyway I think it’s more important to enjoy it… maybe a single treatment like a massage might be a good starter to see what happens. much of dealing with T1 is like this: try it, see what happens, adjust, try again.
