I’m wondering if anyone has any tips for conducting basal tests during a typical day that includes one or two exercise episodes. I ride my bike to/from work twice daily, logging 8-10 miles daily. I ride at a fairy brisk pace, burning a total of 400-500 calories during the 2 rides. I’ve been going low (sub-70 BG0 fairly often, between 2-4 times daily. I find I am having to correct the lows, which is messing with my diabetic diet (2500 calories, ca. 340 g carbs daily). I don’t set temp basal rates for the rides, as each ride is only 15-17 minutes long.
Since I am riding in the morning and late afternoon, I can’t follow the “normal” basal testing procedure that says “don’t exercise.” Does anyone have anything that works, or suggestions of what might work, in terms of figuring out some way of basal testing whilst in the middle of an exercise routine, or training plan?
Thanks in advance, Mike
