hello again! i am having some problems here with exercising. it seems that if i take my regular dose (1 unit for about 25-30 grams carb, depending on what my brave little pancreas can do on the day), wait four hours till there is no iob and then exercise, i am plummeting. went down to 40 yesterday during a run after like 25 minutes. i started out at 110. i think part of the problem is that my pancreas is still working in fits and starts so im thinking there is no iob but maybe im wrong?
i know i could eat more but im going to the doc on fri for a scrip and thought maybe she could give me syringes and i could measure out just what i need from the pen, like half a unit if im going to exercise instead of a full one. i mean, we stick needle after needle in there...would there be any difference sticking one in and drawing some insulin out with a syringe? has anyone ever done this with the orange novorapid pens?
if the only answer is eat more, what are some things you people eat before physical activity? i had planned for a nice hour run. maybe a couple of squares of dark chocolate? its got some fat, 7 grams of carbs, so should keep me goin?
