Should athletes monitor their blood sugar during exercise?-- with Erin Palinski-Wade RD, CDE, LDN, CPT

Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD

Natalie speaks with Registered Dietitian and Diabetes expert Erin Palinski-Wade to get to the bottom of blood sugar for athletes. They discuss:

  • Why athletes are wearing continuous glucose monitors and whether or not they are recommended for all athletes 
  • Do spikes in blood glucose do any long-term damage to the body?
  • Is your insulin sensitivity heightened during the anabolic window, and does this help with muscle building?  
  • What is the glycemic index and why do people talk about it so much?
  • If someone doesn’t have Diabetes, should they care about the glycemic index?
