Occures when you eat a high index carb right before exercise. Insulin overshoots and actually lowers Blood Glucose. However while exercising with ingestion of carbs this can not happen. Why? We release catecolamines that inhibit insulin. Plus we call on Glut-H to transport glycogen.

caused when you sweat to much and don't relplace with proper electrolytes. and you just drink plain water.
After exercise what should you eat? Within how long of exercise should you eat?
