Insulin and exercise
If you take insulin, it's possible for you to become hypoglycemic (blood glucose level drops below 60) during exercise. Symptoms occur quickly and need to be treated immediately.
Some women with gestational diabetes find that exercising consistently and for the same duration will help avoid exercise-related hypoglycemia.
Avoid exercise when you haven't had any food for three to four hours.
When to call your health care provider
Call your health care provider or diabetes educator if you have unexplained hypoglycemia often (two times in one day or two days in a week).
