I've been Type 1 for 25yrs, have always been somewhat self disciplined in vigorous excercise and weight training. One thing I'd learned early on with this disease is that exercise has a profound effect on the body that most doctors and nutritionalists dont have a slightest clue. I've had my share of insulin shock episodes because I didnt eat enough...thank God for my wife waking me up or noticing I'm on the moon somewhere
Surely there are others here that have had to closely monitor and adjust their eating and insulin dosages here. I'm starting a fresh thread to discuss what any would like to add for tips on control, stories and experiences.
I carry a snack bar and 3 packages of fruit snacks for rides up to 50mi. Of course, I tank up with a peanut butter sandwich and 2 glasses of sugar free lemonade before setting out. Anything over 50mi and I'm stopping for something to eat.
