Hello everyone, I just found the FUDiabetes forum and am reading daily- what a wealth of information.
I’m 43, diagnosed T1D 3 years ago.
My question is: Is there anything to help compensate for a significant BG spike during daily workouts?
Workouts are high cardio and weight training (similar to CrossFit) burning 650-900 calories in an hour.
I typically start with a BG below 110, but always spike to 180-220 during and immediately after my workout. Within an hour I fall drastically to below 120 or “back to normal” with no insulin adjustments.
My concern is if I bolus before my workout, or set a temp Basel rate prior (don’t wear pump during), I’ll bottom out afterwards.
Not wearing pump for 60 min isn’t an issue as my basel rate during the day is 0.1 units per hour (because of my fitness and activity).
Thanks in advance.
