I have noticed that I’m waking up to use the toilet sometimes twice a night after working out in the evenings, during day time workouts is less of an issue because my sleep isnt disturbed.
Before and after my workouts I have 30g of dextrose, 30g of maltodextin and 30g of whey. This is done to elicit a big insulin response alongside the protein as well as to have some fuel for the workout. I’m sure it isn’t too dissimilar to what a lot of you are doing.
My concern is that the blood glucose level stays elevated for too long post workout this results in the osmotic pressure of the urine changing so as to prevent the reabsorption of water by the kidney. This causes me to be dehydrated and my urine to be too high in water content and then I need to take a leak too often.
The conclusion is the insulin released can’t regulate the glucose level so I have the insulin release but I’m using too much glucose to make it happen.
So there is my logic, now what should I do? Is that much glucose really that bad? Should I cut out the maltodextrin and go straight dextrose?
