I am curious about some issues I have been having with working out and blood sugar and was curious if someone had answers. My son is getting ready for his freshman year of football. I lift weights with him and notice my blood sugar levels elevate after work outs and stay up until I take insulin (alot).seem to be getting weaker and experiancing joint and muscle pain. I started working out once a week figuring I needed more recovery time. But the symptoms stayed. And I Also I love to mountain bike and I have rode 60 miles in a day. I have a problem with recovery there also. The next day after a ride my legs are shot. But after a days rest I'm just fine. I should mention I am a 31 year old male and was diagnosed last year as a type 1 diabetic.
