    This is so true. True with every health condition. True for the healthiest among us. My mother’s diabetes was never better than when she took up walking every day.

    Actually, I’ve seen lots of logbooks, data management software etc with a place to enter exercise. The problem is, how to quantify it? I’ve got carb/insulin ratio to deal with carb intake, correction factor to deal with insulin needed to lower a high BG, but beyond jotting down “three hours gardening” there’s not much I can to quantitatively with exercise. I can’t throw it on my food scale, I can’t measure it with my meter, I can’t say “I just took 20 grams of exercise.” It’s just a total gray area, and I don’t know how you would quantify it???

    I agree, it’s hard to know exactly what you’re doing – ie, speed walking is different than walking at a leisurely pace. I found what worked best for me is to disconnect my insulin pump (under an hour) then test my blood sugar immediately after exercise.
