Hey this is my first post and I am new to this website but I was recommended this web site by my friend Stephen. I was diagnosed when I was six. I have taken shots since then. I've never tried a pump because I was always afraid that I was going to break it. I play soccer on a high level team and have played on a nationally ranked team for the past few years. I also play waterpolo at my high school and I am constantly working out. My BG has been pretty good but there are some times when my numbers are all over the place. For example, this was my first year playing waterpolo and the physical ability and work that sport demands is extremely difficult. I was eating twice as much as I normally was but i was having trouble finiding the right things to eat that would hold my BG over and allowe me to continue playing without constantly having to get out of the pool. On top of waterpolo everyday, I was going straight from waterpolo to soccer practice. This wasn't aloowing me to eat the proper amounts of food and therefore, messing up my BG. Does anyone have advice on what kinds of foods help them get through hard work outs with out having their BG drop? If you have an ideas, just let me know. Even if you dont have any ideas, I would love to hear your stories.
