I haven't been to an amusement park since I have been diagnosed. I really wanna know if anyone has and how it affected their BS I am taking my neighbors to the carnival for their sister's birthday and I would love to ride the rides with them. Thank you so much for your help and wisdom.

It will do something. You may be doing a lot more walking than usual so your blood sugar may go down. On the flip side, the adrenaline release you get from the rides might raise your blood sugar. The best thing to do is prepare for both situations, test often and don't over correct.

Ok thanks well it's a very small carnival. So not much walking. but I will definitely be prepared just in case.

I never thought of that. I did the Animal Kingdom Disney Park, before diagnosis, but I am pretty sure I was diabetic at the time. I never thought that the Mt. Everest ride or any of the coasters would be an issues. Wow, what an enlightenment. I love those kinds of rides, the more I scream the better.

Yea me too but I always get like a scared affect from all the twists and turns you know? SO I know that when I feel like that now it makes my sugars either drop low, or shoot high, so I'll let everyone know tomorrow.
