"With vitamins there is a concept known as bioavailability. Simply put, you can take all the vitamins you want but if the body isn't able to assimilate it, they don't do you any good. I see glucose and glycogen in T2s in a similar fashion.…"

"The fact that exercise is glycogen limited, not fat limited, is a pretty robust finding in exercise physiology across a number of different study models and conditions. The bottom line is, when you deplete glycogen, you bonk regardless of fat…"

""Ultimately, whether your ketotic or not, it will be your glycogen reserves that will determine how long you can work-out, not fat or ketone reserves." I find this statement difficult to take at face value- before i could disagree i would…"

FHS replied to Bob's discussion 'Ketotic Sport Training' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"Yeah, anectdotally, I have to agree. I don't low carb but I notice that a hypo is not a hypo is not a hypo. If I'm under 60 and the BG is stable or even dropping slowly, I can keep working out with a minimal affect. If my BG is dropping…"

Holy s***! 374. I'm all freaked out and my fasting numbers were about 130. My disease was caught in the early stages and for that I am thankful. I know it is just a matter of time for the antibodies to take their toll, Reading the posts here really gets me thinking about my quality of life in the not so distant furure. How are you dealing with the fuss of it all?
