can any body advice me....



Hi Khurram, welcome.

 

Medication is usually not something that you should stop and start at will,  What medication(s) are you taking?

 

Also do you test when you feel low?  You might not be, the only way to tell is to test. If you feel that way during exercise you should first check the numbers because exercise can drive them low.  Here's a chart that can help:  click on the title

Riding across the alps to spread awareness about diabetes

[ Edited ]

I was recently told I am pre-diabetic, and want to do something about it while also being an advocate.

 

I wonder how to find sponsors, if I can get support from ADA, etc.  I think I can do such a ride very affordably, as I plan to camp out a great deal and eat cheaply.

This was not solicitation, I said "I wonder how I can find sponsors", didn't ask for money.

 

I actually am looking for advice on this from constructive supportive community.

I think it generally works the other way around, where you raise donations from your friends, family and others to go the American Diabetes Association.  You can read more about that at http://www.diabetes.org/donate/do-it-yourself-fundraising.html?loc=DropDownDON-diy-fundraising.

Actually, just so we're clear, all three are against the rules. You will notice that when we leave placeholder messages for moved posts, the word "inappropriate" is specifically used. Please also see Section 3 of our Community Standards:

http://community.diabetes.org/t5/Forum-Tools-Information/Our-Community-Standards/td-p/31671

 

Lizzy is right, however, that we do not allow outside solicitations. We hope you'll understand why. If all people hoping to raise funds posted their requests here, even only those for diabetes awareness/research, we'd have a slew of posts every day about this.


I see that you are a biker. We would encourage you to participate in one of our Tour de Cure events!
