So dx’d less than a year ago. Decided to run a half marathon in July.
Usually when running, I just eat some fruit or take glucose tabs to cover exercise. My BG stops lowering the minute I stop. I know that if I do any form of strength-training I also have to turn down my insulin because it’ll drop for hours.
Now that I am running more than 4 miles at a time, my BG is dropping for 12+ hours after.
This is less of a training question and more of a scientific one…
Is there a threshold we can reach where our metabolism changes how it uses glucose/fat? or cause a residual BG drop?
Do you have one? What is it?
