I was dx’d this last September with Type 1. I am using Humalog in an Animas pump. I was using about 20-30 units of insulin total/ day until I started training for a half marathon.
Since I run about 20+ miles a week I am low 1-4 times a day and I have decreased my insulin by 5-15 units a day. I barely bolus for food unless its over 20g at a time.
Am I honeymooning or am I kicking ■■■? haha
My HA1C in Sept was 11.3 and now it’s 5.4.
If I am honeymooning do I bolus and hope my body doesn’t do it? Or is my metabolism just more and I will go low? I don’t want to destroy more beta cells by assuming my body will take care of it.
My doctor told me not to bolus, but I wanted your opinion. Has this happened to anyone before?
