Question for my fellow Diabetes Type II friends......

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Ok, so I've got this question that I've been pondering, just wondering if anyone else has an issue with this as well.
So rather than just checking my BS fasting of a morning, my nutritionist is having me check it randomly at other times of the day. I've been noticing, no matter what I may have eaten for lunch, if I do my cardio after lunch & then followup with a 2 hour post lunch sugar check, my BS is running a little high.

Has anyone else had an experience of this type, I've been noticing this trend & am concerned. But no ---I'm not giving up on cardio ---just curious if the BS & exercise are bouncing off of each other as I thought exercise was supposed to improve BS readings.

    Donna, you might check with your nutritionist but I also check my bs's randomly. I don't do it by the clock though. If it is after lunch it could be 2 or 3 hours after lunch. Depending how high your bs's are when you take them would be how concerned I would be. My bs's run from 90 to 120. As long as they don't go above 120 I don't worry about it all that much. The higher numbers are not that common for me.

    You might be dropping a little low during the cardio and so your liver releases glucose to compensate. See what happens if you do your check before your exercise if you can.
