When I first was in the hospital with diabetes, I was told to be as active as I would be normally so that they could figure out the correct insulin doses. I was a pretty active girl. I couldn't figure out how to surf while indoors, playing basketball might interrupt other patients, and I didn't have an indoor bicycle trainer to spin on in my room at the time. The only thing I could think to do was to run up and down the eight flights of stairs in the hospital. Luckily my mom was right there beside me to keep me company.
