Re: [IP] Exercising on a Pump



Meha,
I have even found my sugars go up when I do cardivascular (an EFX machine)
training, but I do it rather hard, so it may be similar to the lifting.  I
was also told by a nurse that excercise helped glucose to enter the cells
without insulin, but another one told me that that was not true.  ????????
