NUTRITION, EXERCISE, AND EATING DISORDERS: PDF OnlyWeil Richard MEd CDETopics in Clinical Nutrition: June 1999 - p 69-80 Buy Abstract Managing blood glucose during exercise for individuals with diabetes can be tedious and a deterrent to further exercise. For example, patients complain that they frequently have to eat to prevent or treat exercise-induced hypoglycemia; this is a problem for those who want to maintain or lose weight. In this article, strategies for managing blood glucose during and after exercise are presented. The article reviews the physiology of exercise and diabetes, the progression of fuel recruitment during exercise, glucoregulation in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and case studies that illustrate how to adjust insulin and food for exercise. © 1999 Aspen Publishers, Inc.
