You should certainly eat a good mixed meal right after exercise to avoid hypoglycemia, and you may want to sip on a carbohydrate drink during exercise, too - not a lot, but just to keep some calories in. ...Read more

Unfortunately, "hypoglycemia" is a very popular self diagnosis, but it is not true hypoglycemia and has nothing to do with your blood sugar. Diabetes can be hereditary, and if treated with insulin, that would be true hypoglycemia. ...Read more
