As an example, this athlete (I will StrictionD Review keep him nameless) trains an average of 4-8 hours a day. He may workout sometimes three times per day with some sessions lasting as long as two to two and a half hours. I was wondering what strategy he used to keep his blood glucose level from going to low during the workout. He told me that he purposefully allows his blood glucose level to elevate to slightly over 200 mg/dl., before his workout begins and will avoid his mealtime insulin. He said this results in him not feeling the greatest during the first part of his workout, however, it helps keep him from dropping too low. He will also stop and eat something during the workout on occasion if he feels like he needs it.I want to point out, and stress, that this is what seems to work for him, and that I am not endorsing this for everyone or anyone. I would bet that he settled on this regimen based on his own trial and error and in conjunction with his doctor and diabetes care team.
