I am the same as you with the problem of different exercise gives different
bgs afterwards. If I do 45 mins of machines(gym) and weights, I give myself
0.7 basal rate (normal day basal is 1.5) and drink orange juice all the way
through. Afterwards my bgs are 3-4. If I swim or do aerobics then I'm
usually low during and afterwards and have not found out how to avoid them.
I leave my pump on at all times except swimming, in which case I bolus half
of my normal half hour basal rate before I swim and then return to normal
basal when I get out. I also eat wine gums before swimming. Still low when
I get out, I think the problem lies with how fast, slow, different strokes
you may do that changes the bgs afterwards.
Since starting to exercise I have low bgs between 5 - 8 pm, hence on seeing
the doctor he told me not to bolus for my evening meal, and yes without my
bolus my bgs are OK!! I still can't get over not having to bolus. He also
advised eating a slice of bread or yogurt or porridge before exercising,
hence giving long term carb in the blood stream. I tried this and found
myself 10 - 12 before exercise and hypo afterwards!
On with the battle of finding a balance for our exercising problems!!!
I've been using the silhouettes for a week now and my skin is much improved
even after 3 days without changing. I should have changed a long time ago to
It freaked me thoughtwhen I had blood in the cannula, but from other pumpers
it seems to be one of those things.
