Sorry! Of course. If you’re hypo, you should probably not be doing much other than sucking back some juice. I should have said he suggested the anaerobic exercise to prevent lows in those who normally experience them when working out, not to correct them.
AH! Oh That makes MUCH more sense now! I thought he was recommending anaerobic exercise to treat lows. I guess pre-emptive anaerobic would work well. It’s funny because in another thread I started on a similar topic, I had someone suggest aerobic activity to balance out the high glucose from anaerobic exercise. Maybe the key is in the balance of the two. It’s just too bad I HATE aerobic exercise with a burning passion
This summer while at the CWD conference in Vancouver, I heard Michael Riddell from York University talk about how even a 10 second sprint at the end of an aerobic workout (and/or mixing a sprint into an aerobic workout) can buffer a large BG drop post exercise. He’s got some great articles on his website about diabetes/insulin/exercise.
Actually, I have found sprinting can raise my blood sugar if it drops from aerobic/cardio exercise.
