Re: [IP] FRUSTRATED with exercise

  Are you decreasing your basal rate during exercise?  And don't forget that 
exercise increases your metabolism for the rest of the day and you may need 
to decrease your basals or bolus less for meals.  When my son golfs, he 
decreases his basal from 1.8 to .2 for approximately 5-6 hours, then boluses 
for half his dinner otherwise he gets low.  He also snacks while golfing 
(every 45 mins.) and doesn't bolus for the snacks.  It's so tricky and
