    Weather changes may affect your blood sugar. In hot weather, you may be more dehydrated, which could cause your blood sugar to be high. Be sure to stay adequately hydrated to help prevent this. Also, remember to store your insulin at the proper temperature (between 32 and 85 degrees F). This will ensure that your insulin works effectively.
