I'm a twenty year old female and I was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a couple months back, I think in August, and while it was hard at first getting started I think I'm getting the hang of it; I've started doing strength training and other exercises for my abs and cardio, and so far I'm seeing good progress. My arms are more muscular and more defined, and I generally feel good about the way I look. I try to keep a healthy diet and I take protein supplements as well. I've noticed today though that I've been having to go to the bathroom a lot, and I thought maybe it was 'cause my sugar was high, but I checked my blood sugar throughout the day and it was normal. I'm not thirsty or anything, and although I drink a good amount of water every day, today I've been needing to go to the bathroom like every 30-45 minutes even if I don't drink any water in between. Could there be a reason for this, like the amount of exercise I've been doing, or the protein supplements? Or is it something that happens occasionally and I shouldn't be worried about? Maybe it sounds like a stupid question but I can't think of much else. I would really love to not have to stop doing as much exercise or taking the supplements; working out is pretty much the only thing in my life right now that gives me confidence and helps me stay positive.
