Being a type 1 diabetic for 34 years has taught me a few things. If I don't ride for 2 or more days my insulin requirement goes up. Since I have been riding my food intake has gone up but my insulin usage has dropped a little. If I don't ride on the 3rd day I can tell my blood sugars are a little higher than normal and I will use more insulin. Being on an insulin pump this is not a problem. I try to ride at least every other day. Yes I do get anxious if I don't ride.
