So, I’m wondering if any type 1’s could share their insulin dosing while exercising. I’ve recently really started exercising again, long hikes with inclines and tennis. I’m having a horrible time with lows, lows that last 5 - 6 hours after working out. My CDE suggested eating an apple 15 - 30 grams of carbs from an apple as it has fiber, 1 hour prior to work out. I still am dropping. I’m working on getting back on pump. But, how does one do this on MDI? I’ve already cut my AM levemir back to 2.5 units AM and 4 units PM, last night I woke up at 4AM at 55 and .5 unit corrections are dropping me a lot now too.
Also, do any type 1’s have issues with really dry skin, eyes, mouth, etc…I drink a ton of water but I always am so dried out, my skin, etc…I sometimes think it’s from levemir, I don’t know though???
