Aikido and Diabetes
I have been reading and trying to learn something around here for several months, and thought I would introduce myself, and ask for a little input.
I train in Iwama Ryu Aikido at Capital City Aikido in Montgomery, Al. Started training in February.
I am curious as to whether there are any other Type 1 diabetics who train. I have been struggling with managing the impact of training on my diabetes for several months now, and was hoping that there might be some people who are a little further down the road, and might be able to give me some pointers.
I am specifically interested in strategies for managing blood sugar levels during seminars, and other occasions where training lasts longer that 1-2 hours.
Any and all input is welcome!!
