"Couple of thoughts, How long is your run and how hard is the grade? Do you CGM? Are your trends flat? CGMs can miss a rapid drop due to the lag time, I know I can drop over 100 points in 15 minutes of a hike when I hit the first up. Have learned…"

exhausted even with stable blood sugar.

I'm trying to figure out what is really going on here. I run a 5k about 3 times per week. I was hoping that after doing this for a while now, that I would start to see some improvement in my stamina. Unfortunately, I'm still exhausted after my 5k runs. During my last run my BG was 120 to start and 121 afterwards.I felt like I was barely making it even though my BG was very stable. For the life of me I can't figure out where this fatigue and lack of stamina is coming from. Please help!! I need…See More

Guys, I know that you're tired of hearing about this, but I'm still struggling with how to control my blood sugar during intense exercise.first of all, I use to be on the Omni pod because #1, I hate attaching things to my body, #2 that pump is too high maintenance, #3 the deductibles were too high. # 4 I really didn't think that it was that much more of an advantage over just syringe and vial. #5 I was having the same issues even with the pump so I think its me and my lack of knowledge and not…See More
