I am a 31 year old man, I was diagnosed just over 3 years ago. This is my first foray into an online community. While I have been learning the up’s and down’s of being a T1D for the past few years, this last year has been the most difficult for me (my honeymoon phase ended about a year ago i’d say), I’ve realized he importance of eating right and excising, but it is wreaking havoc on my insulin sensitivity. I typically run a mile or 2 once or twice a week, and on top of that I play basketball hard for 1 to 2 hours once a week as well. The issue arises after the basketball session. The next morning my body is extremely sensitive to insulin, I usually cut my bolus in half (this sometimes works), sometimes down to a third (sometimes works as well) of what it would normally be but that doesn’t always work, and I still find myself dropping incredible amounts in short periods of time. Just this morning my sugar was tanking after breakfast so I corrected (overcorrected in all honesty) and suddenly my sugar was 308, then I took a fraction of the correction my PDM suggested and within 40 minutes my sugar was 88 and going down fast!! Needless to say I have been yo-yo-ing since.
Wondering if anyone could offer advice, their own history with exercise and sensitivy, reading materials etc?
I use the Dexcom G4 and an Omnipod
