Diabetes and paintball

I tried searching and didn't find anything. I have a couple questions since this is new to me. I play Msxl race 4 so it's a lot of moving.

1. What to eat during a event?
2. What do you keep on hand to keep from crashing.

Any info is appreciated

I have Type 1 diabetes, and I play paintball pretty regularly. I play recball though, not speedball, so I don't think there is as much running but I will still tell you what I do. I eat something like a peanut-butter sandwich or some pizza at the lunch break and just check myself and If my blood sugar is somewhat high, I will take insulin, if it's below 130, I don't take anything. I keep those glucose tablets on my during games in case I start to feel like I'm crashing, and in the staging area where I keep my stuff I always have a non diet soda and some candy in case I crash. Just keep your numbers in check and you should be good, I have never had an problems while playing.
