"Thanks for the reply Leah. I think I figured it out. I ate slightly more for breakfast, took the metformin, and saved the glipizide until after the class. I hit 90 immediately after the class and was at 190 1/2 hour later, but that was as high as it…"

"This happens to me sometimes. I try to work out before 3pm so I don't go low while I'm asleep. On the nights I have water polo practice at 9, I have half a glass of milk before bed, which seems to prevent those lows for some reason."

"Hi Brian Thank for the reply. Not sure what you mean by the Gatorade making things worse. I thought taking in carbs during spinning would avoid the post-workout low. Can you explain further? Much appreciated. Jax"
