The rising temperature in summer rapidly affects the body. If you are a diabetic or have high blood pressure, then you need to be a little more careful. A little carelessness can cause blood sugar to increase rapidly. Especially in summer, it becomes necessary to remove the lack of water in the body. This has a rapid effect on blood sugar. There is a risk of blood pressure increasing further due to heat. In such a situation, it is important not to allow an imbalance of electrolytes in your body.
