Re: [IPk] temporary basal rate and walking

Hi Sam
Personally I'd have just bunged in a load of insulin and gone walking 
That's often happened to me (huge high just as I'm about to start 
walking or something) but unless you'd been high all night as well and 
really having a serious problem, then I think you would have been fine. 
Probably just a bit of bad carb guessing and the adrenalin. I've played 
softball in a tournament with a blood sugar of 31 (and played one of my 
best games ever!!!) - obviously I whacked in a load of insulin first and 
kept a close eye on things.
