Swimming has been going okay, I’ve not had any blood sugar problems there so far. I started at doing -50% on my dinner bolus, and have got to -25% last night but I think it might need to be somewhere in between.
Last night results were
6.2 pre dinner. 6pm ish. Did -25% exercise setting
Ate dinner, short walk with the dog, off to swimming
8.9 before swimming (about 7pm)
5.1 after swimming (about 8:15 ish)
Given my meter targets a bg of 6 and that is presumably by 4 hrs I think I might try somewhere between -25% and -50%. Not having bg problems in that no hypos during swimming and being 5.1 is fine, just feels like could be a bit too close for comfort as I then drive to Asda, collect the shopping and drive home.
I had a hypo last night though that took nearly an hour to come up, later in the evening. I’d had a kitkat of 25g carbs so I’d bolused for it. I guess I should have reduced the bolus though as couple hours later I was at 3.9. I had some Kendal mint cake, didn’t recheck for half an hour, and was 3.7. So had some glucose tabs, rechecked in 10 mins and 3.4. Started to panic a bit, haven’t really been having any hypos for last few weeks and it’s going down not up... had a small carton of apple juice, recheck in 10 mins and 4.3. Of course the next check after that it was up at about 9.
