I always eat before I exercise, my choice is the Y pool. I can drop 100 points post. What kind of exercise are you doing? Do you test before and after, this gives you great information.  Nancy

I've found that if I eat first...wait an hour...and then do my cardio in the morning (I do my resistance training at night), I have better control over my blood glucose throughout the day.  The difference is small, but noticable...your mileage (no pun intended! Smile) may vary.
