I too am on insulin, but only take it at night. I've never been told to wait an hour after taking insulin to exercise, even when I was taking short acting insulin. I need to exercise after I eat so that I have enough fuel. I make sure to always bring a snack with me and some juice. I couldn't exercise before breakfast as my blood sugar would be way too low and I have found that exercising before meals the same It may be a matter of trial and error, especially as you see how your body and sugars react to both the insulin and the exercise to find the best times for your meals, insulin and exercise. It definitely requires some planning. Good luck with that and most importantly don't be afraid to exercise.

I'm on insulin and wondering what's the best time to exercise since I'm told to wait an hour after I take my insulin.

If I exercise in the morning, can I exercise before breakfast? That's before I take my insulin.

or is another time better. Plus I work 9-5 job and 1 hour for lunch and not able to do exercise then either since I use insulin at lunchtime. emoticon
