Any form of movement since starting on the pump five years ago, I go low very quickly, so since going on the pump I have gained a ton of weight as I feed my lows and avoid exercise like the plague. I was hoping with being on the pump I could avoid all these lows, but it has yet to happen, but I keep trying.
Gardening on Saturday I lowered my basal to .03 for an hour before gardening and my bgs was 200 and with in a short time I dropped to 102 and felt like crapola. The 200 was not caused by lowering my basal, but other issues.
Today I lowered my basal again to .03 an hour before biking, I biked for only 40 minutes and I was 102 at the beginning, ate 40 carbs and was 159 at the end, I was fairly happy, but still I have to eat a lot to do all this.
I want to lower my basal, not eat, and ride like the wind for hours without eating, is that possible? Not asking for much.
And yes I have gone sky high later on occasions in doing all this lowering of basals.
I am one frustrated diabetic/pumper.
