I am type ???, but anyway I use insulin: Humalin-N for basal and Humalog for meals. I do have dawn phenomenon.
I am getting back into training for triathlon and am picking up the activity level. I am also losing weight quite rapidly at the moment (intentional) due to breastfeeding, exercise, and watching calorie intake.
Does anyone find that basal requirements change when you have a session in the evening?
For example: my usual nightime dose of Humalin is 8 units. This will give me a FBS in the low 80s. But if I have a session in the evening (45-1hr +) and still take the 8 units I will wake up low... in the 60s to low 70s. So I am now adjusting on the evenings I will work out and take 6 - 7 units, guessed requirements.
Daytime basal is not such a big deal as I eat and can test if I feel different.
