I'd stopped exercising in the past couple of years, but have become consistent about it (30 min/day) for the past few months. I keep lowering my basal rates and I'm still going low 2-3 times a day. I was on 13 units total basal a day before, am on 10 units total now and still having lows. I was told by a CDE today to lower the basals even more, trying 8-9 units a day. I'm on MDI, not a pump, if it makes a difference.
I guess I'm just surprised that a short (but pretty tough) work-out a day could lower my OVERALL basal needs (rather than just the bolus ratio for the meal before my workout). Has anyone else had a similar situation where daily work-outs lowered your overall insulin needs, rather than just after the workout each day. Thanks!
(P.S., Feel free to tell me that it's my pancreas working again, lolol)
