Good afternoon all,
Listen, Im wondering what people do for exercise and Type 1 diabetes. I have been a type 1 for over 35 years and am frustrated with Post workout highs.
Depending on what my sugar level is 1/2 hr Pre-work determines my Temp Basil I set. My work outs are 1 hour long, and I would categorize them as an above average workout. (In my eyes lol)
If Im 10 (180) or higher (1/2 hr before) I set a 60% (Animas Scale 40% for 1 1/2 hours) basil rate for 1 1/2 hours
If Im lower than 10(180) I usually give myself a 10% (Animas Scale 40% for 1 1/2 hours) basil rate for 1 1/2 hours
Pre-workout I have a protein bar 25g carbs
During my work out I may drop down to 5.0 (90) but about 30-45 minutes after…look out up I go, sometimes as high as 14 (252) or higher and that is without any food, then I do the worst thing and start chasing with insulin.
So my question to put out to all of you is, what are your patterns for work out and Type 1 diabetes? Sorry forgot to say I’m on the Tandem Tslim X2 pump, with Dexcom G5, and Fiasp insulin.
Thank you all for your responses.
