RE: [IP] Exercise - Eat more sooner AND less later?



I think the absorption rate really varies per person.  For me, when I
exercise, the absorption rate is DEFINITELY faster.  Especially if I am
exercising the spot where the site is.  Example:  if my site is in my upper
arm and I lift weights..I get a very rapid absorption rate, thats why the
temp. basil rate is good.
I wouldn't say that you should eat more food sooner.  I would check my bs
before and after exercising and go from there.  Also, exercising can affect
bs levels for hours after you exercise so be careful if you exercise before
bed.
Hope this helps,
Melissa

When exercising with the pump and assuming that no change is made in the
basil rate:
Does exercising speed up the absorption of the insulin so that you should
eat more food sooner and less food later (as is the case with typical
insulin shots)?
