More power to you on getting your Type 2 under control. I think, in many ways, managing type 2 is probably harder than managing type 1--for the very reason that its not "as pressing" as you mentioned.
My doctor and I have spoken a couple of times regarding aikido and bloodsugar control. My blood sugar is *very* well controlled, under normal circumstances. when i start exercising, my metabolism seems to cut on like a light switch. sugar goes up for about an hour and a half and then starts dropping.
the real problem is in longer than normal training, and in my sugar dropping in the middle of the night--about 7 hours after training.
My doctor is very helpful, and very knowledgeable...but there are some lessons that only seem to come from living with and dealing with having diabetes.
Thanks again for the responses!!
