We routinely include a discussion of how to safely transport insulin and medications in hot summer weather, but I'm wondering about educating our folks with diabetes about the effect of heat and humidity on their bodies as well as their meds.

I read a report at WebMD about the role heat and humidity play on people with diabetes, and that according to a survey conducted in Phoenix, folks with diabetes often aren't aware how heat and humidity affect their meds as well as themselves.
 
Have you had a discussion about summer weather with your people with diabetes?
