Like Jackie, we find we always have to increase Matthew's insulin over the
winter holidays because he's just not outside as much ? conversely on the
long summer evenings, he's always out riding his bike, kicking a ball
around or up at the tennis club (so lots of tests and lots of Capri Sun and
digestive biscuits handy). And like Jackie we've just about got his levels
sorted and it's back to school! Also, although Matt never did have a sweet
tooth, there's no doubt he just eats more in the cold weather and even if
that increased quantity largely takes the form of fruit, he's still eating
more and exercising less ? much like me, in fact!!
