Posts Tagged ‘Blood Sugar’

Good morning all.

I am looking for some advice and help please as I am not sure what is available.

I occasionally like all people with Diabetes have low BG and just recently I have been cycling home from work which is 4 miles. This of course burns up lots of Carbohydrates and in turn makes my BG low when I arrive home e.g. 4.0. I do try to have something like a banana before leaving work but this does not seem to be enough, I am looking for something quick and small to eat ?

I am also looking to find out what you eat or drink when you have a low BG as I tend to panic eat and eat sweets. Is there something more suitable that would easily fit in my pocket and work fast ?

Thanks for your time.

Whats going on ?


I am sorry it has been a while since my last Blog.

All is well and I am still on the #Animas 2020 #Insulin Pump which is going great and I also use the #Bayer Contour USB Blood Glucose Meter which again is working well. I am also looking at testing a new meter which I will tell you all about as soon as I can.

So what has been going on with me – my baby son Jake is now 17 months old and growing every day, he took his first steps on Christmas Day and is now walking about everywhere as you can imagine, fingers touching everything – GREAT !! My wife is due to give birth to our baby daughter on 24th January so we will certainly be even more busy very soon but I am sure it is all worth it. We now have a #Icandy Pear #Stroller which is superb and can be used as a single or double stroller which will certainly come in handy, it was not cheap but I suppose you get what you pay for.

I am still cycling to work each day which is only 4 miles but certainly does affect my #BG when I get home at night so any ideas would be much appreciated as I have tried having a banana before I leave but still have very low #BG once home. I have heard some cereal bars are quite good but it would need to be something easy to eat which can pop in my bag. I am hoping to get an #electric bike soon which will certainly help a lot but there are so many to choose from and they are not cheap so we shall see. I have also found a great #gadget for my iPhone 4 and cycle which enables you to add the iPhone to your bike and it is totally waterproof so I use a cycle app to measure my exercise so check out Think Biologic iPhone 4 Mount

Anyway that’s it from me and please keep checking out my site.

Kindest regards
