I’m 22 years old and love working out. I have Type 1 Diabetes. Could you please give me tips on preventing hypoglycaemia (low sugar feeling) during my exercise routine?Exercises will lower your blood glucose levels gradually. However, certain precautions have to be taken to prevent your blood sugar levels from dipping to low. Hence, it is advised that you should check your blood sugar levels before and after a workout, this is especially true if you are feeling unwell. If you are opting for heavy exercise such as aerobics, running or handball, you may need to eat a bit more such as a half of a vegetable or egg sandwich and a cup of milk.Also, if you haven't eaten for over an hour or if your blood sugar is less than 90 mg/dL, eat 1 apple, 1 pear, 2 high fibre biscuits or drink something (glass of milk) before you exercise. Carry a snack with you in case of low blood sugar. Test your blood sugar before, during and after exercising. Don't exercise when your blood sugar is more than 270-300 mg/dL. Consult your exercise consultant and physician. It is best to keep sugar candies, juice, Glucon D and hypo kit by your side in case of hypos.
