Re: [IPk] Banned or suspended from the gym

 For the record, liquids with longer acting carbs are available. as is the
possibility using a temp basal if you have a pump. As is eating food in the
lobby, changing room etc (I believe it's only in the actual gym area she's not
allowed food). so it's not quite the same. I'm not saying I agree with the gym,
but there are possibilities to comply and still remain alive while exercising. I
still think a compromise could easily be reached.
