Re: Setback: need advice on X-rays

Hi Joan,

The only way to know if the swimming is helping his insulin levels would be if you knew what it was at some point before you added swimming in and then checking it after swimming has been a regular part of his routine and absolutely nothing else in his management was changed.  Swimming daily (as with any exercise on a regular basis) can probably help lower insulin but a session every other week probably isn't going to necessarily do a whole lot.  What will help is getting an idea of what his current insulin, glucose and ACTH levels are, making sure his diet tightly controlled and getting his trim as optimal as possible.
