Daily Care

Question from Levittown, New York, USA:

My daughter's blood sugars were perfect for days, but recently there was a full moon and she was low all day then very high at night. Does a full moon have anything to do with lowering or raising blood sugars?

Answer:

I never heard of a different metabolic susceptibility among children with diabetes with regard to the moon’s cycles.
