TIPS TO HANDLE SUMMER HEAT WITH DIABETES
If heat exhaustion is not taken care of, it can quickly progress to heat stroke. Heat stroke is a more urgent matter and is a medical emergency. Hence if the above mentioned symptoms occur immediately take rest in a cool place and drink more water.

When you are on vacation you may not be able to get exactly the same food items which are recommended by your dietitian, so it is always better to travel with snacks like whole wheat bread,/multi grain bread/ rice flakes/puffed rice etc in pre-measured serving sizes.
