You start your day with …. first thing in the morning?
I start my day with some sort of physical activity. Whether it’s walking the dog, yoga, a workout, anything to get moving to help my insulin sensitivity and compensate for the dawn phenom. I’ll then treat myself to some coffee and get my day going !
Please share your fitness routine? Cardio & strength training?
I still try to stick to my university routines where Monday is cardio and legs, Tuesday is arms and HITTT, Wednesday whole body workouts, Thursday Cardio flow day, and Friday yoga or a whole body workout. Weekends are typically fun activities like hiking, hockey, tennis, or a golf driving range.
According to you how often should a diabetic individual keep a track of their sugar level? The first sign you are able to pick on that something is not right?
Keeping track of glucose levels is important because it demonstrates patterns of your body. The biggest game changer for me, and it’s demonstrated in literature, is the utilization of continuous glucose monitors- I use a Dexcom G6. It’ll take a reading of one’s glucose level every 5 minutes that you can see on your smartphone or watch (certain kinds). This significantly helps me monitor my levels alongside recognizing my body’s signs and symptoms of high or low glucose events. For high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemic events) I feel frustrated, nauseated, tired- kind of like a bad hangover, and for low blood glucose levels (hypoglycemic events) I feel weak, shaky, confused, sweaty- kind of like being intoxicated.
