Working out as a diabetic can be super tricky. Since the slightest things can drop blood sugar or raise blood sugar it can be hard to work around an fitness plan. For me, I get frustrated when I work out and then have to eat something in order to bring up a low.
I have realized that if I know that I will be working out than I can lower the amount of insulin that I take for a meal but if the work out is unplanned I can closely monitor my blood sugar and if my blood sugar is low I can have something healthy like an apple rather than thinking I have to eat something packed with calories.
There are so many things in life that would be so much easier if I didn't have diabetes but there is nothing at this point that I can do to cure my diabetes; therefore, I have to think of ways to handle the obstacles.
