    Hi Kevin, as a type 1 the best way to manage your energy levels is to try and maintain good BG control, if your insulin is working efficiently and your not running high then this helps you to not feel lethargic, so eating a good well balanced meal and taking right insulin doses will help.

    Sorry Kevin I cannot advise you on this, your nurse/consultant should be working with you to ensure your insulin doses are matching your requirements, are you in regular contact ? and are you recording your results, your averages sound good to me ;)
