Does anyone else (non-diabetic) get really hypoglycemic during/after exercise? If so what do you eat before and after exercise? Is there any way to prevent it?

      Yes. Anything with protein is best. I'll usually have something with peanut butter (like a couple slices of bread with peanut butter or crackers with peanut butter) before or after, maybe some almonds or almond milk, or yogurt. I'll also have some fruit, like some strawberries along with it. Protein shakes are good too, but I tend to need a huge shake because my metabolism is stupid fast. You do also want to make sure you're eating enough overall in meals hours (and days) before you exercise and have enough stored carbs and fats for your body to have the energy it needs. That is something my one physical therapist pointed out to me when I felt overall weak and shaky during sessions.

      I'm generally hypoglycemic bc I have a very physical job (pretty much exercising all day) I'd recommend eating something with protein and maybe a little sugar/carbs. This way you get a kickstart from the sugar that's maintained by the protein. A good example is scrambled eggs on toast, it gets me through every day

      I deal with hypoglycemia a lot, but I’m not able to exercise anymore, so not sure how to prevent it for exercise. I take juice with me everywhere I go for it in general though, even if it’s just from the bedroom to the bathroom 😅
