It has been a rough ride with diabetes. I started running to try and beat the disease. I still find it difficult to maintain normal, steady blood sugars when I run. I have done several half marathons and 15 k’s in spite of the difficulty of lows and highs during runs. I have a wonderful and very supportive family, which gets me through the ups and downs of blood sugars and life in general. Persevering is what I do to get past those literal ups and downs.
My Health Details:
- Type of Diabetes:Type 1
- Low blood sugar instances per week:1-3 Instances
- Daily number of times checking blood sugar:4-6 times/day
- Managing Diabetes with:Insulin Pump
