Is #T1D and #Fasting Really That #Bad?

grizzly-bearRemember how when you were a kid, parents and adults told you not to do something and when you became an adult – you did it? Chances are, if that thing you did worked-out well for you, you still do it today. So I began thinking about fasting and how it would impact my Type 1 diabetes. I have a Dexcom CGM. I wear an Omnipod insulin pump. Closely monitoring my bG and insulin, I have a more secure feeling about the possibility of fasting without running into trouble. Yes, going to the gym and exercising is probably not a good idea when fasting. Knowing how the body repairs itself when in a state of hibernation like bears in the spring, I wonder if the same can be said for people with T1D? Ketones are like the ‘magic pill‘ for many ailments in the body. I don’t see how it could hurt. Anybody have feedback on it? Tweet me @AlliesVoice.
