5 ways to prevent exercise-induced hypoglycemia

This Week's Tip
5 ways to prevent exercise-induced hypoglycemia

Although beneficial for people with diabetes, exercise can cause your blood glucose levels to drop too much, especially if you take insulin or any glucose-lowering medications. Symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) tend to happen suddenly and include feeling shaky, light-headed, weak, confused, anxious, fatigued, irritable, or hungry; headache; breaking out into a clammy sweat; or even fainting. This can occur during exercise, right after exercise, or even up to 24 hours after you finish a workout. In rare cases, individuals may not experience any symptoms at all. By paying close attention to how you're feeling, and by knowing how to treat low blood sugar symptoms correctly, you can prevent problems before they put you at risk of injury. To prevent exercise-related hypoglycemia:
  • If you take insulin, do not inject insulin near the primary muscles that will be used during exercise (typically the thighs or back of the arms), because it will be absorbed too quickly.
  • Check your blood glucose level before you exercise and make any necessary adjustments based on your glucose reading before you start exercising.
  • Do not skip planned meals before exercise or go too long without eating.
  • Carry an easy-to-consume glucose source (such as juice, hard candy, or glucose tablets) when you exercise.
  • Drink plenty of water before and during exercise as dehydration can affect glucose levels.
