Nothing is better than a summer night and a round of golf. After years of golfing it still amazes me that 80 three second swings can lower my blood sugar. Last night I was at 164 when I teed off, by the sixth hole I was down to 70.
Why the low blood sugars whenever I golf? The only answer that I have is that the site for my pump is in my midsection. My doctors always tell me to never take my insulin in my arms or my legs. The reason being that I'm so active the insulin will work faster and work differently than if injected in to my midsection.
My thought is that the twisting motion of ones golf swing causes the insulin to work a little bit better. The simple fix, the next time I golf I will tweak my basal rates just a little bit. Gatorade and a fiber one bar helped a little but tweaking the basal rate will be the way to go I believe.
