Effect of temperature on readings

I'm experiencing higher than average readings lately. Does heat have an effect? 100 degrees yesterday. Not eating anything different. No change in liquid consumption either.

A very plausible answer. I check my readings as a ball player watches his batting average.
This is my first summer after diagnosis. Cooler today though.

"No change in liquid consumption either."

Good question as my primary digs never reaches triple digits. This is what I understand Asok; When it gets hot dehydration can lead to elevated numbers, because the glucose reading is a number per deciliter of water. Less water in the body then equals a higher concentration of sugar in the blood. I would just make sure to stay well hydrated during the heat wave and keep a close eye on your readings and how you are feeling. HTH
