[IP] Exercising on a Pump

I think I read that insulin is not needed to get glucose into cell when in 
moderate to intense exercise in an endocrinology text book. Interestingly I 
also remember that the mechanism is not understood. I have not found a lot 
of people who are aware of this fact and plan on doing a MEDLINE search to 
further explore this question which I find intriguing.

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.  ????????
