Sue Shares How She Ensures A Proper Glucose Level Before She Runs (VIDEO)

Rate This

Sue describes what she does to ensure her blood glucose level is correct before she runs.

We just finished the interview and I am going to be running and this is what I do. When I run I can’t put on my shoes and go out the door without knowing my number and that number means my blood glucose number. So I am doing the finger stick and getting a little bit of blood and I hope it’s a good number to run. I try to be on top of this. So it’s coming back five seconds. I am a 176 – that’s awesome. I am ready to run.

I start on a high number because it’s going to go down even though I put my pump on a lower basal rate. I slow down my insulin. I am happy to start with a 176.
