I'm a type 2 diabetic. I had my A1C under control for 5 or 6 years & was down to 2 Metformin a day, 1 @ breakfast & 1 @ lunch. I tossed in the towel for a a year & had a stomach flu/dehydration, my BG went wacky. Then my doc. increased my met. to 2 pills twice a day. I have now re-started exercise full force, personal trainer, body pump, camp 24, turbo kick boxing & cycle classes. Today my BG's were low. B4 this eve's work out, I ate half a roast beef sand & sweetened green tea. While doing a form of a sit-up, using a 10 pound handled ball to above my head. at rep. #15, I got dizzy. The last time I got dizzy was at camp 24 doing group situps, & bonking my head on the floor. My question is should I reduce my met. now that I am exercising more? Do I need to not do intense sit-ups? What is making me dizzy? I know & need to consult to my doc, but she isn't a personal trainer/exerciser or diabetic.
