Hi There ;
I am Type 1 Diabetic since 27 years / female.
I am going to the gym since 9 months in hope to loose weight ( BMI 29 ! ). Since I am going to the gym my HBA1C increased to a shocking 8.5 ! I am desperate as I really dont know how to coop my BG with my exercise.
I am testing before workout and sometimes I am on 200 ; if I start workout it drops within only 20-30 min to 90 ; if I inject more to avoid the 200 ; I end up streight in Hypo or need to eat.
Does anyone know how to manage this ?
Currently I am injecting
Basal ( Levemir ) 10 units morning / 10 units evening
Humalog 1 Unit per 10 Carbs / or to correct 30
I wake up with +/- 120 since I am injecting Levemir ( with Lantus I always had high BG in the mornings 220-280 )
I am injecting Humalog for my food / correction but sometimes face high BG after food.
During gym ; I hardly can start a workout under 200 / or without eating when I am on 150 ... as I end up in hypo.
My food is mainly based on Vegetables / Salad / Protein like chicken breast etc ... not more than 110- 150 carbs per day with less than 1100 Kcals.
My current BMI is 29 ( 80 kg / 165 cm ) and 34 % Fat ! I am going 6 days per week to the gym for min. 2 hours ( 45 min cardio / rest light weights )
I dont know what might be the reason for not loosing weight. It is so frustrating!
