I'm finding it really difficult to find the right balance between increased exercise, reduced calories and the right amount of insulin. I think I'm doing great and then my sugar will drop and I'm shoveling in a chocolate bar to bring up the sugar to normal, therefore increasing my calories. Any body else had this happen?
