I find it has more to do with an Adrenalin rush. When I compete in triathlons my BGs will increase significantly - like from 120 to 360. But I can do the same exercise in a non competitive activity without a sharp increase in BG levels.

I read an interesting article - wish I could find it - on hockey player Max Domi who has to wear a pump while playing NHL hockey because that typical 2 minutes on - skate like crazy - body check - etc is such an Adrenalin rush continuous insulin is required.

I also read an article once about an American Olympic swimmer - same sort of experience when he was in competition.

That's where I am at. If I get a high number the bike the gym for weights or just get out and move.

I am only a few months in and that sliding scale thing made me fear anything over 120 so 120+ I get up and push it down with exercise. 35 to 50 points in 45 min or less. I must be sensitive to insulin too cause that is what happens.

Insulin resistance is a hallmark of T2 diabetes. But usually T1s aren't insulin resistant but insulin deficient (or non-existent). The only exception I've seen is T1s who eat too many carbs over a fairly long period of time and take too much insulin to cover them, and eventually their cells become insulin resistant as well. But that quickly resolves once they reduce carbs and insulin.

Obviously, exercise impacts the BG of T1s and T2s differently.

The T1s that I know who have a rich carb diet but manage to control it with insulin also tend to be obese and seem not to fair well over the long term - as a Type 1, I feel minimizing your carb intake is equally as important as giving yourself insulin injections.

I lost 30/lbs and went from a chubby guy to a fit guy. I think weight training helps me a lot. This is me in the photo.

Acute and chronic pancreatitis elevates blood sugars. The development of diabetes can occur as pancreatitis damages beta cells that produce insulin Almost half of people with chronic pancreatitis will get diabetes. If one is taking steroid based meds (corticosteroids/glucocorticoids) this will also raise glucose.
