Any poker playing Ds out there? I’ve recently taken up the game and I love the exhilaration, but I have yet to play a night of poker without sky high BGs. My last outing, I even limited consumption of extra carbs (i.e. the potato chips, pretzels, etc) that are invariably lying around. I started the night increasing my basal by 40% and steadily increased it as I saw my numbers rise. I ended up increasing my basal by 70% and still hit 250.
I’m starting to wonder if this is just an activity that I’m going to have to eliminate (which would suck). Anyone have similar circumstances that they’ve figured out how to get a handle on? I suppose it doesn’t have to be poker, just anything that kicks in the stress hormone.
