Hi, Ive had type 1 Diabetes now for 20 years and yet I continue to struggle with the balancing of maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and exercising! I either scale back on the dose because Im afraid of going high, or dont seem to eat enough to keep from getting low! Imean, who wantsto eat so many carbs right before working out! Is there a way to calculate how your blood sugar may drop based on exercise? Thankfully, my insulin pump is coming tomorrow so im hopefull this will help with flexibility. But any and all tips would be wonderful! Thanks! kimView Thread
