i need a drink that will restore everything i sweat off
I am a very active 17 year old diabetic. I am a weight lifter, MMA fighter, and on my schools track and field team so i sweat a lot. i can't have Gatorade because it makes my blood sugar go up and i have to take insulin when it does. i want to stay away from having to give myself insulin but i need something that restores everything i loose when i sweat.
it is great that you are so active. It also appears that you are very well aware of the need to control your blood sugar.
I would suggest that you talk to a nutritionist who specializes in diabetes management. He may recommend certain foods to consume with water to prevent the spike and crash that you would get from Gatorade.
I wish you good success in your athletic pursuit.
I also agree with Karin as far as talking to a nutritionist or a dietitian to help you with your diet and other needs you might have. Water is the best fluid to drink for hydration, but I would also recommend to you to try Smart Water instead of Gatorade. My wife is also Type 1 and she had the same problem with Gatorade until she switched to Smart Water, because it doesn't contain sugar. You can find it pretty much anywhere.
I hope this helps!
