I was thinking back to the last time that I went on bike ride or had any type of extended aerobic activity. Apparently it was before Johnny was born - before I was diagnosed with Type1.
I play softball at least once a week and during this past softball season I was coaching, but as coaches out there know, you have light to moderate activity. So even though I was active this season coaching softball I haven't worked out like this in a long time.
With all that to say... Since Tuesday, I have been having some crrraazzyyyy lows!!! Like below 40's 2+ times a day! And they have come up on me without notice! I usually am like a rubber bouncing ball with my BG's after a low, but they have been staying low.
Is this what usually happens after intense workouts?? My cousin who also is a T1 said that the lows can last up to 24-36 hours... Seriously????
I have been feeling under the weather since yesterday, but I don't think that would be the culprit.
This is so frustrating because I try to work hard to stay in shape, but I've been consuming carbs to bring my sugars back. :-( almost completely negating all that I just worked out for. Ugh!! If I were to eat sugar tabs i would have to eat like 3 bottles - which would be *gross*. I wish there were a higher carb tab brand out there like "Uber-Carb Tabs" or something. A tab that would be worth 20g or 40g carbs and not just 4g. Seriously folks, 4g? I need more for a low than that.
Oi. And then I hear about Cynthia passing away.... Soooo sad. I don't know if it's because information is traveling faster with social media or what, but I've been hearing about so many more T1's dying in this past year and a half. I'm glad that we are able to connect and be there for each other through the tough times.
Thanks for listening,
