    for me, with t1 diabetes, exercise is a great way to bring the BGs down as long as ketones are not present and I have a typical (and sufficient) amount of insulin on board. If running is something I do all the time, and I’m not out sprinting on the track, the epinephrine response is generally less than the glucose-lowering effect. For me I just watch it carefully and as long as I am not going up higher, exercise really brings it down quickly. It can be a bit dramatic if I have recently bolused, so I watch closely to avoid a “rough landing.” I am an adult, though, so obviously it might be different for a little kiddo.

    Thanks for the info Will. Arthritis is a real pain and it helps to have someone else put it into context. I’m getting more used to this ‘mixing and matching’ and every little bit helps.
