Wow, great suggestions, guys. I really need to track my sugars the next time I play to see whether or not I respond similarly.
I've honestly never tracked this sort of thing very much, but in retrospect, it kind of makes sense.
For me, my big worry is playing for an extended period of time to the point where I might NOT eat, causing a low blood sugar reading or reaction.
In the past, I would play adventure or RTS games and not bother about the time.
Let's face it, if you are as hardcore of a Blizzard Gamer as I am, getting stuck into multi-hour and multi-day sessions of Starcraft and Diablo is not that hard to imagine, LOL.
(BTW, I don't play any WoW. Too involving, LOL)
I've responded to these tendencies of mine by limiting my play time to no more than 2-3 hours at a time and then taking a break to either have a snack or a full meal, chilling out watching TV and switching my brain off for a little bit, and then jumping back into it.
I'm sure the initial play period probably does cause my BS to spike, so the next time I really go hardcore on that, I really need to track it.
MyBustedPancreas: I will keep your basal increase tip in mind.
I haven't been using my new basal and rapid insulins for that long, and I have no experience adjusting that part yet, even as my endo says in a few months I will be in a position to reduce it to one shot a day (currently I am on a prescribed amount of 11 units of Levemir both at morning AND at night).
