What is Diabetes mellitus?

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder mostly triggered when insulin production is abrogated or cells develop resistance toinsulin that metabolize glucose and helps the cells to absorb.

Winters make people slow, lethargic and less active due to which the blood sugar levels can go up. Adding on to it sugary foods and unbalanced diet can spike the insulin levels

Yes, when seasons alter, blood sugar levels in the body rise. Meaning that diabetes is directly proportional to the weather conditions in which people are living,”

How blood sugar levels get impacted in winter season

Skipping workouts

“When winter season arrives, people tend to skip their regular physical routines, such as yoga, exercise, and morning and evening walks, which correspond to increased blood sugar levels.

High sugar intake

During winter, food habits are also significant contributors in disturbing diabetes management.

“With cold weather around, people crave more sugar intake. Due to the high sugar intake, glucose level spikes and incur complications for patients diagnosed with diabetes.

A 2014 study, published in the National Library of Medicine, stressed the link between blood glucose control in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and the seasons, with haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels decreasing in the summer or warm season and increasing in the winter or cold season .Cold temperature strains the body more than usual, causing it to release stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. “These hormones causes liver to release more glucose for energy, leading the blood sugar levels to rise”.

The secretion of these stress hormones is also accelerated during any illness or infection, which is common during this season. “Whenever the body faces any infection, there is a release of stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, which reduce the effectiveness of insulin — the hormone responsible for lowering glucose levels.

Steps to control blood sugar levels

  • Take medications regularly.
  • Keep a balanced diet and follow restrictions as advised by the doctor.
