I am a type 1 diabetic in my early 20’s and wanted to reach out to this community for any helpful info on type 1 nutrition and exercise. A few months ago I had an epiphany and realized it was time to get on top of my health. Over the past few months I have lost almost 30 pounds now only weighing 190, and getting my HbA1c to 7. While there is always conversations about type 2 diabetes, the same cannot be said for type 1. Specifically I want to know how excercise effects blood sugar in T1’s. For my whole life my blood sugar has always gone extremely low during workouts. Know I often find my blood sugar raising after workouts.
I am also curious what diets/lifestyles you all think would be most successful for type 1’s. I have followed a fairly low carb diet and cut out breads and refined sugars. I have really tried to intermitten fast, but it can be difficult due to low blood sugars. Any other tips and suggestions would be fantastic. Thanks, Jacob
