IMVic commented on Anne Findlay's group 'Triabetes'
"CGM is a very helpful tool - will make sure your in "zone" on the days leading up to the event (which can be a challenge due to tapering/decreasing activity). It can't really help during the swim, but great on the ride to train with…"

IMVic replied to Progress Trumps Perfection's discussion 'Marathon while Sick?' in the group Diabetics who run Marathons!
