[IP] Control

That's right Bob.  Pumping Insulin pg 132:
    "With warmer weather and longer days of spring, less insulin is often needed. Most people are more active in the summertime, and they have less fat in their diet as well.  Also the body uses more energy to cool itself in hot weather.
    Just the opposite usually happens with the approach of winter. More insulin is needed by most people, but if you are outside during very cold weather and find yourself shivering, you are using more energy to stay warm.  This actually means you may need less insulin.  Similarly, at high altitudes more energy is needed to breath and pump blood because the air becomes thinner.  Until your body
acclimates to the altitude, which takes a few days, less TDD or more carbohydrate may be required."

Believe it or not, it takes more energy to keep you cool than warm.  Hence,
less insulin when your metabolism is working hard more insulin when it's
not working,  Just like excursus.
