Keeping in Balance

To stay healthy, you need to learn to balance insulin, food, and exercise. The body of a person without diabetes produces just the right amount of insulin to maintain a normal blood glucose level. If he does not eat, very little insulin is produced. If he eats a lot, his body produces much more insulin.

Because your body is not producing insulin, you must obtain it through injections. The insulin you inject in the morning controls a predefined amount of blood glucose. If you skip a meal, the insulin keeps right on working, plunging your blood glucose lower and lower. If you eat more food than the insulin you injected can handle, your blood sugar will go very high. If you exercise, you need to eat more food, because exercise makes insulin work more efficiently.
