How soon after exercise do you find insulin use decreases? And how long after not exercising does insulin use increase again?
Samson was using about 12-14 units of insulin, but we recently put him in an outdoor camp pod (6 kids, all masked, all outside). Anyways, since then his average insulin usage is about 8 to 9 units – but then he has four days a week with no camp (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays). And yesterday (Friday) his insulin use went up to 13 units again. I’m just trying to figure out a way to anticipate these dips and spikes and remind myself to change them before we have a day of highs or lows.
The outdoor activities are hiking, biking, and soccer mostly, although some days they do boogie boarding when it’s warm enough.
