Downhill skiing

Anybody have advice for downhill skiing and bolusing?

I seem to go high during downhill skiing, then low the night after. I think I've figured out what to do...increase basal rates during skiing, decrease at bedtime...wondering if anyone else is an active skier that can share their pump tips.

It has been a few years since I went skiing. What worked for me was to keep my basals the same and eat a high fat/protein breakfast and reduce the bolus a small amount. I think a combination of the altitude (I require less insulin), exercise and stress made it all work out okay? I did not make any adjustments for the eveneing/overnight hours and worked out just fine.

Your ideas make sense. One of the hardest parts of diabetes is aiming at a moving target. It appears you have figured out which way it is moving and have a reasonable plan. Good luck and have fun.

I have the opposite problem of going low during skiing, so I usually have to decrease my basal or make sure I have snacks with me. Exercise always makes me go low, though.

I don't really have any other tips other than making sure to keep your pump in a safe place. I don't fall too much, but when I do, it's usually pretty bad. Haha. I'm always concerned about my pump flying off or getting damaged, so I try to keep it as secure as possible.

Otherwise, not really sure what else you want to know. Post more questions if you have them. I go skiing quite a bit.
