read diabetes for dummies a great little very understandable book i have it on my shelf permanently but you can find it at the library..you need carbs with that protein before exercising..it's where your energy comes from you need to work at putting everything together you can learn and keep it handy

My blood sugar after workout was 85!!!

Classic_Vixen, you could try eating a stick of string cheese before your workout. Also, make sure that you cool down and stretch afterwards. If you don't do this, it can cause dizziness, muscle soreness, and other effects. emoticon

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.

"We have met the enemy - and it is us."

The only weaknesses we have are the ones we allow ourselves to have.

actually that was the result of the brain asking the liver to supply sugar again just like at night..probably if he is going to push that hard he needs a small snack before an apple with peanut butter would be a good one it should be about 15 to 20 carbs and a protein ..this takes work but the body has to be fed and he just used stores from the liver and that should be watched as it's easy to do damage to the kidneys and other organs

My husband hit the gym HARD yesterday--First time back with machines etc after basement workouts and recuperating from a car accident and weight loss surgery a few months back--BS was 400 when done! So yes It can rise drastically with a workout-which is a new trend for him -Rest should help reduce it in a few hours- so he needs to not overdo the insulin.

Actually, mine dropped to 5.9 mmol after yesterday's work out. Is it true that the sugars can climb when one is ill?

talk to your doctor or dietician. There is this morning phenomenon (or dawn phenomenon) where your blood sugars actually rise...

your body is probably reacting to a drop and thus producing more insulin giving you an increase after your workout. better to eat before exercise.

I have the opposite problem. I will have a very good snack an hour before my Zumba class and then after the class I have dropped dramatically. Conversely I've had the same snack and been high after. Bizarre!

Have not seen a big drop when I do exercise so far. A little bit but it doesn't stay even so maybe ask your MD for sure.

did you eat??? if you didn't consume enough carbs to cover the workout in all probability
your blood sugars feel and the liver kicked in with enough nourishment to cover what you did not put in before exercising

I have decided to workout in the morning before breakfast so I get it out of the way. I check my blood sugar before and after and have seen that my blood sugar goes up. I feel fine after a 40 minute work out on the treadmill but I am wondering if this is normal. I was expecting the blood sugar to go down after the workout. Has anyone had this happen? I tried to do a search but nothing came up.
