I'm a type 1 diabetic and was wondering if anyone knew a good pre workout formula I could make myself from bulk ingredients. I am just not sure which ingredients will effect my blood sugar or if any will at all. I doubt any of my doctor/health professionals will know much about these supplements so if you have experience with some ingredients I can use your input is appreciated!

Cheap and effective. I have tried a lot of preworkouts, and most of the "premade" ones are just fine blood sugar wise

whats the best way to test to see how they effect your blood sugar? test before and 30min after consuming? Also what about citrulline malate?

I wear a continuous glucose monitor. CitMal has no effect on me.

we are all different though. Test before taking it, 30 mins after, and mid workout

So you are sensitive to sugar content correct? What are you looking for in your pre-workout supplement?

im sensitive to any carbs or ingredients that will change my insulin sensitivity/resistance. I want some focus, energy and endurance. I don't care about getting a pump. Some ingredients I was considering were cit mal, GPLC, Beta alanine, caffeine, acetyl tyrosine and thats basically it
