My newly diagnosed daughter usually runs blood sugars in the upper 200's. We are just 5 days out from our first insulin shot. This morning she woke up with a blood sugar of 79 shaky and pale but feeling fine other than that. Then this afternoon after school we went back to gymnastics and she came to me shaky and her blood sugar was 89. She had already had her less than 30 carb snack between lunch and supper at school, so before we left for gymnastics I gave her some sugar free jello and 2 slices of lunch meat. What kinds of snacks are good before a sport like gymnastics? It's not competitive, but still moderately active. Hope all this makes since????? Thanks in advance for all the advice. I LOVE THIS FORUM!!!!!!!
