Today I started working out at the local ymca. This was my first time exercising since being on my pump and having my BG under control.
Before working out I tested and was 89. I ate 20 carbs on the way to YMCA and took my pump off when I got there. After only 20 min. on the treadmill (5 miles) I was soooo tired! I know I'm not in good shape but I thought this was odd for me so I tested. BG was 39. I had no symptoms besides being tired. It wasn't until my heart rate was back to a normal range that I was able to "feel" my low. By that time, it was coming up.
I know this is going to be a trial and error thing but I was just wondering what some of you do pre and post work out to avoid a low. I don't plan on anything too intense. Treadmill, weight machines and some group classes (yoga, Pilates, & spin).
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
