I have been a type 1 diabetic since I was 9 years old, I am now 22. I reached a turning point when I decided I wasn't going to be unhealthy any longer, I struggled with my weight and keeping my blood sugars under control for years and my doctor said losing weight could help, so I started an exercise routine at a local gym. 15 minutes of cardio and 15 minutes of strength training everyday. I'm already starting to feel better and have more energy, I've been at it for a few weeks now, but I've noticed a problem. I had to rapidly adjust the amount of insulin I took for each carb (sliding scale) because my body was using it more efficiently, I think I have found a good ratio now, but it seems like my sugar is having phantom highs! When I check an hour after a meal, its fine but 3 hours later when I check its raised! Is there sugar stored in the fat I'm burning that's causing this? I'm getting frustrated, has anyone had similar happenings? Thanks.View Thread
