    I could really use some help and advise from other people.

    I am LADA diagnosed two and a half years ago at age 38. Currently managing my diabetes with Metformin and Levemir twice a day.

    Where I am struggling is before exercise. I do a lot of high intensity and cardio after work. I am finding it hard knowing what to eat to give me enough energy for the exercise but without really spiking my sugar levels. I work in an office so have access to a microwave and kettle at lunch time but in a town centre so close to plenty of shops or places I can buy food.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
