INTRODUCTION Reduced counterregulatory responses to a next-day hypoglycemic challenge and hypoglycemia result from two spaced episodes of moderate-intensity exercise and have been characterized as exercise-associated autonomic failure. We hypothesized that this phenomenon is caused by postabsorptive state at the time of exercise rather than by autonomic failure. METHODS Participants were nine healthy postmenopausal women in a crossover study. Two hours of treadmill exercise at 43% of maximal…

Effects of Exercise in the Fasted and Postprandial State on Interstitial Glucose in Hyperglycemic Individuals.

It is concluded that performing moderate exercise in the postprandial state after breakfast, but not in the fasted state, decreases glucose excursions during the subsequent 22 hours period in hyperglycemic individuals not using antidiabetic medications.

The effect of physical activity on the insulin response to frequent meals

Short bouts of physical activity throughout the day attenuate glucose excursions and improve insulin clearance compa red to n exercise day with 1 h of morning exercise, and both continuous and intermittent exercise mecha nisms that improve satiety in obese individuals are not related to changes in concentrations of PYY.

Immediate post-breakfast physical activity improves interstitial postprandial glycemia: a comparison of different activity-meal timings

Low- to moderate-intensity activity should be implemented soon after eating to improve glucose control following breakfast, and the type of activity appears less important than the timing.

Effects of exercise before and/or after a mixed lunch on postprandial metabolic responses in healthy male individuals

Forty minutes of postprandial exercise or 20 min of pre- and postpranderial exercise are both effective at attenuating the glycaemic and insulinaemic response to a mixed lunch, while a higher lipaemia was found in the pre-and post prandrial exercise condition.

Safe exercise options for people with diabetes

Data obtained in previous studies strongly indicate that a short bout (10 min) of high intensity exercise before the daily aerobic activity during the mid-postprandial period three times a week can lead to better health without jeopardizing glycaemia.

The Timing of Activity after Eating Affects the Glycaemic Response of Healthy Adults: A Randomised Controlled Trial

Undertaking activity after waiting for 30 min following eating might be optimal in modifying the glycaemic response, and when cycling started 15 min after baseline compared with the sedentary control.

Influence of acute exercise of varying intensity and duration on postprandial oxidative stress

In a sample of healthy, well-trained men, neither aerobic nor anaerobic exercise attenuates postprandial oxidative stress in response to a high-fat meal.



Acute, same-day effects of antecedent exercise on counterregulatory responses to subsequent hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes mellitus.

The data suggest that exercise-induced counterregulatory failure can occur very rapidly, increasing the risk for hypoglycemia in T1DM within hours.

The effect of different diets and of insulin on the hormonal response to prolonged exercise.

During exercise norepinephrine increases and insulin decreases independent of plasma glucose changes whereas receptors sensitive to glucose privation but not to acute changes in insulin levels enhance the exercise-induced secretion of glucagon, epinephrine, growth hormone and cortisol.

Effects of low and moderate antecedent exercise on counterregulatory responses to subsequent hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes.

Repeated episodes of prolonged exercise of both low and moderate intensities blunted key autonomic and pancreatic polypeptide and metabolic counterregulatory responses to next-day hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes.

Effect of morning exercise on counterregulatory responses to subsequent, afternoon exercise.

The aim of this study was to determine whether a bout of morning exercise (EXE(1)) can alter neuroendocrine and metabolic responses to subsequent afternoon exercise (EXE(2)) and whether these changes

Effects of antecedent prolonged exercise on subsequent counterregulatory responses to hypoglycemia.

It is concluded that, in normal humans, antecedent prolonged moderate exercise blunts neuroendocrine and metabolic counterregulatory responses to subsequent hypoglycemia.

The effect of fasting on the hormonal response to graded exercise.

Fasting resulted in a halving of insulin concentrations, a slight reduction in glucose concentrations, and ketonuria, and the concentration of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide was higher at rest, but not significan...

Effect of glucose on plasma glucagon and free fatty acids during prolonged exercise

It is suggested that glucose availability reduces exercise-induced glucagon secretion and, possibly consequently, FFA mobilization.

The carbohydrate status of the body is probably the main determinant of the type of blood hormone profile that develops during exercise, and the degree of ketosis that develops after exercise.

Post-exercise ketosis.

Muscle glycogen utilization during prolonged strenuous exercise when fed carbohydrate.

It is concluded that when they are fed carbohydrate, highly trained endurance athletes are capable of oxidizing carbohydrate at relatively high rates from sources other than muscle glycogen during the latter stages of prolonged strenuous exercise and that this postpones fatigue.
