    Hi, I am a keen runner but I find that before I go running I always get a surge of adrenaline and this always raises my blood sugar. I have tried giving myself correction doses before I run, but I still end up with an extremely high blood sugar after my run. But I do not want to hang around and wait for my blood sugar to lower before I run, as I do not have the time to spare. Should I try giving myself a little extra insulin on top of my correction dose?
