Running and Statins

Hi all,I've been taking statins off and on for the last 11 years (since my DX with T1). I've feel a kind of soreness in my legs as if my legs are permanently almost cramped. I think this may have something to do with the statin.Can anyone tell me if they have some experience with this?See More

"Hi Sunny T and welcome to the club. I tried different things but went back to GU gels. It is tricky at times and I am careful not to over use - That can end badly. I find that all things that require chewing are problematic."

"I ran 5 marathons on shots and I just took a few units less the night before a big run. It didn't seem to F-up the rest of the day because of the high mileage."

"I too have a bit of a jump with the Gels. I only took 4 during my last marathon because I was worried about my BG. I'm thinking of trying the Chomps. But The Gels are still good if you go low."

Mike,
I see that you've been trying the Spring Universal Infusion Set. I'm having problems with my Medtronic Quick Set because I've lost a bit of body fat, so I'm on the lookout for new infusion sets. How do you like the Spring set? Do you recommend any other sets? Also, are you using a CGM, and if so, which model? Thanks
