We can never be absolutely certain that some particular weather will impact the diabetic condition in any one particular individual – we have to leave this for you to determine. However, there are statistics that indicate increases in diabetic complaints in the population under certain weather conditions. This we can provide to you. Diabetes is a friable disease. By that is meant that for many patients, it is often unstable. Mostly it is clear what has brought about the instability... lack of exercise, emotional stress and poor food adherence are well known triggers. Less well known is the finding that certain weather conditions can contribute to detrimental changes in a diabetic's health. While we cannot specifically determine whether you, individually, will be affected by the upcoming weather, we believe that providing you with an indication of the likelihood that detrimental changes will be more prevalent in the population as a whole could help you. Our hope is that diabetic sufferers who monitor our forecasts will be able to take measures provided by their consultant physicians to address their ailment and mitigate its impact on their lives. While we do not provide any medical advice, per se, we feel that our information can be useful to many, and therefore, we offer it freely.
