  Because the temperature in the sauna is high, it causes vasodilation, is prone to sweating, and may even cause dehydration, causing blood sugar changes in diabetics.

Diabetic people who have been injected with insulin, if they are in the sauna, gradually increase their absorption and have a hypoglycemia reaction.

  In addition, the sauna bathroom is not well ventilated, and the concentration of carbon dioxide inside the bathroom increases, which is 2-5 times higher than that of the general room.

In an environment of excessive carbon dioxide, most people do not suffer too much damage, but people with diabetes are prone to some uncomfortable reactions, such as headache after bath, nausea, palpitation, etc., which is what we often call “halo bath.”

  It should be noted that even if the blood sugar control is better, you can steam the sauna properly. It is not suitable for steaming for too long, and pay attention to adding more water. If you feel a little uncomfortable, you should immediately come out of the sauna.
