Hello all, I am new to Living with Diabetes team, I'm in the process of completing diagnosis tests, but I have been diagnosed as hypoglycemic (and my two brothers and maternal grandfather have/had it). My 5-hour glucose test is this upcoming week. At least I have an answer to all the issues I've been dealing with - things make more sense now.
I am working on improving a lot of issues. Stress levels (new job), exercise, and eating low to moderate-carb every 2-3 hours (a challenge). When I exercised this past week, I had two interesting situations.
1) I ached for 3 days (22 workout video made me ache horribly for 3 days!?) until I remembered to take my vitamins. My body needed magnesium, potassium, and probably Vitamin D from the multivitamin and I had forgotten to take them. Pain disappeared. Thing is, the pain kept me from exercising those three days.
2) The second time I exercised this past week, it was about 33 minutes, and very sweaty...and I got a migraine! That never happened before when I exercised routinely. I researched that one too and found that not eating before will do it (I think I had, but it didn't have any carbs).
Any tips on how to prevent it are welcomed. I read on here about eating an apple and peanut butter. I will try that.
