Maths expert's temperature trick is a must for anyone going on holiday

“But it involves some pretty nasty numbers.”

The brainbox, who goes by @tomrocksmaths on Twitter, adds: “So what we are going to do instead is come up with an approximation.

“It might not work for your scientific experiments but if you are on holiday and you just want to know the temperature, it will work a treat.

“To approximately turn degrees Celsius into degrees Fahrenheit, all you have to do is multiply by two and add 30. So let’s look at 30 degrees Celsius. Multiply by two to get 60 and add 30 to get 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

“So let’s look at 10C- a little cooler. Multiply by two to get 20 and then add 30 to get 10 degrees Celsius is approx 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

“Multiply by two, add 30, and you have it!”

Type 2 diabetes symptoms: Are your feet hot or cold? The temperature that could be a sign

Type 2 diabetes, like high blood pressure, can go undetected for many years because the condition does not usually present symptoms initially or the symptoms are too subtle to notice. However, consistently high blood sugar levels – the main complication of type 2 diabetes – can lead to an array of problems. These problems often constitute the first signs of type 2 diabetes.

How to respond

According to the NHS, you should see a GP if you have any of the symptoms of type 2 diabetes or you’re worried you may have a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes.

“You’ll need a blood test, which you may have to go to your local health centre for if it cannot be done at your GP surgery,” explains the health body.

The earlier diabetes is diagnosed and treatment started, the better.

As the NHS points out, early treatment reduces your risk of other health problems.

According to Diabetes.co.uk, doctors should also screen for neuropathy amongst diabetic patients at least once per annum.

“At an annual check the test for neuropathy will involve the doctor stimulating the foot with a small plastic implement or tuning fork to see if you correctly detect the sensation,” the health body explains.

It adds: “Tests to confirm or monitor existing neuropathy may include ultrasound, nerve studies and biopsies, or referral to a specialist neuropathy consultant who may conduct further tests.”

How to treat neuropathy

Bringing blood sugar levels under control is the primary treatment for diabetic neuropathy.

This can help to prevent further problems from this diabetic complication.

There are two key components to blood sugar control – diabetes and exercise.

There is technically nothing you cannot eat if you have type 2 diabetes, but you have to limit your intake of certain foods.

Carbohydrate intake can cause blood sugar levels to spike because the food group is broken down into glucose faster than protein.
