  2. Since beginning pump therapy, our daughter has lows after unplanned exercise. Is this normal? Are we doing something wrong? (19 Dec 2008)
  3. Swimming has helped me lose weight, boost my energy and give me better diabetes control. I eat a light dinner an hour beforehand. Should I eat afterwards, too? (24 Nov 2008)
