I take insulin every time I eat, and I have five or six small meals a day so I'm checking my BG levels every three hours anyway. Since I'm checking so often, I don't bother to check in between regardless of the activity level, unless I feel a bit off. I can usually tell...

I have found, though, that for me the exercise effects can pop up a LOT later than I expect them to, sometimes even not til the next day... so do please keep in mind that everyone is different, and you may need to experiment to find the best time for testing etc.

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

I exercise in the morning. I eat a snack exercise and then eat breakfast. I have taken it right away and at various times after. I guess it depends on what you want ot know.

I exercise right after dinner...and usually for about one to one and a half hours...so I wait a few minutes after that to get to a total of two hours before I take my blood sugar.

After you exercise, when do you take your blood sugar? Right afterwards or a few minutes?
