where people touched by diabetes help each other.

How do people cope with exercise? How do you work out how much to take when eating?

I usually try and have some type of protein before working out. I usually don't set a basal and I usually run between 24-36mi a week. I run in the am and end up taking 1-2 units after working out since BS usually rises shortly after. I'm averaging 20units a day for bolus and 21 for basal. As long as I take my insulin w meals at least 5-10min before eating my total daily amount of insulin is considerably lower.

Everyone is different. Some drop during exercise. Some climb. my husband has to bolus, while our son and daughter crash so we have to disconnect or give snacks to keep them stable.
