Diabetes and cycling

Are you type 1 or 2? Treating with insulin, pills, diet? That will likely make a difference

1 or 2 is a bit different. My son is Type 1 on an insulin pump. We can alter basal rate for exercise but he does need fruit juice and regular blood tests.
 
I was diagnosed with diabetes type 2 in January 2014. Diet and cycling helped me to "revert" the condition. By July I was taken off the medicine, metformin. The doc said at the time, make sure you don't go cyvling without any food on your stomach, that's it. Of course you have to look after your feet, etc..... like you do even if you don't do cycling.
My sugar levels are normal now so I follow a normal life..... in saying that, I should be more careful with what I eat.... that is what got me here anyway.

I am a medical person and do realise this may cause me some restrictions. But I am also very determined not to give in to it any day soon.
