"Hi, Thanks for the thoughts. like I said, they did a whole line of tests (bicycle, echo, holter, ekg, brugada, ...). they also did bloodwork that time, separately from the bloodwork they do every 4 months. I would be surprising to me that it turns…"

Heart palpitations during exercise

Hello,I'm a 27 year old. I've been a type one for about 6 years with a hba1c always around 7.A year or two ago I suddenly started experiencing palpitations (by which I understand sudden irregular heart beats that don't change the overall rhythm). I panicked and had all sorts of tests done in my local hospital ( bicycle, echo, holter, ekg, brugada, ...). Some experts took a look and said that: with the information currently known, they was no reason to worry. 'with the information they currently…See More

OK. I don't want to seem to know more than your doctors. I find with diabetes, everyone can be so different.

But the reason that I think it is important to get your ratios right is that it can give you a more flexible lifestyle. Since I have my basal (like long acting) insulin set right, then if I don't feel like eating, then I don't need to. I am not on a fixed schedule.

Here is a website with much of the same information as is available in the book. Hope that this helps!
