My DS is playing in his hockey tournament this weekend. I have been able to see that the adrenaline highs from hockey, both send his bg's way up and make him very insulin resistant. He played his first 2 games Friday night, both in the 400's. I gave him correction shots before the games, during the games, and after the games and nothing brought it down until the rage bolus I did at the end of the night. It was crazy. Surprising, he still played really well and earned the MVP player award. Still, I don't want him playing with such high bg's. Blood sugars were a little better today during the game, but I had to be a lot braver and give him a lot of extra insulin before the game and still it wasn't quite enough. It's scary frankly having to give so much extra insulin, before they go into a sporting event, but I am realizing that this is what he needs. I have been doing a lot of blood checks though and running to the bench to do checks too (which the coaches have been really cool about). I do have a question though about food and exercise: First, after my son finished playing his first game on Friday night, he said that he was starving. It had been about 3 hours since he had last eaten and he still had another hour to go before his next game. The problem was, his numbers were in the 400's. I wanted to just give him a correction shot and delay the food until after the second game. I was pretty sure that any food eaten at that point would give me no chance of getting his numbers down before the next game. My husband thought that he should not go into the next game hungry. So we ended up giving him food, I covered the food and gave him a correction dose. His numbers did not come down at all. I'm not sure what was the right thing to do in this situation - feed him or not? It's hard to deny a hungry kid, but at the same time if he is insulin resistant at that point, is his body even able to use any of the energy derived from food?
