"Hi Jordan, a few thought to consider: 1) what is consumed during the run continues to metabalize after the run so be wary of what and how much you consume during the run. Gels and GU have 70-80% complex carbs (GU has 25g carbs and only 5g sugars).…"

High Blood Sugar after Long Run?

Hey All! I am new to Diabetes (dxed T1 in April 2012). I am honeymooning at the moment, so I am only on Metformin and Levemir at night. I ran a race last year in the height of my symptoms and only made it 9/13 miles. This year, I wanted revenge on the race because I have a better handle on my health. My last a1c was 5.9, and things are going well. However, some of these long runs - using Gu at the hour mark - are causing me to spike after the run. I was 72 mg/dL right when my run ended, then it…See More

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend J!
Memphis....so far away, but it feels like you're right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario...a city named Kitchener-Waterloo (2 cities joined together). I'm a wife of 33 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children (one 28, the other 26), a grandma to 3 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer....I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!!
Keep in touch, ok?
hugs....linda
PS....Danielle (daughter) had to sell her cute little Pom, as her little boy is allergic!!! So...Bear is gone!

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!
