High blood sugars in diabetics? Not necessarily from inactive lifestyles, in new research on intense exercise in people with Type 1 diabetes.
Many diabetics are MORE active than the general population, and (see 2nd paragraph in abstract) as that number increases, athletes with diabetes are becoming a subject of interest. In fact, turns out most Type 1 diabetics have glucose spikes after intense exercise, and it’s got nothing to do with food, fuel, or insulin.
It’s an interesting insight into what REALLY happens metabolically when we “leave it all on the floor.” A little technical, but useful if you’re attempting to connect with this population.
