You need to talk to a Diabetes consultant who will give you lots of info. Many Other things affect blood sugars besides food and exercise.

I'm so frustrated & discouraged. I am newly diagnosed & just got my first glucometer yesterday. I've already tested myself 3 times. At the doctor's office about an hour after eating my glucose was 129. Not bad. I didn't eat the rest of the day & tested myself before having a late dinner: 136. Strange as I didn't have anything to eat, but I don't yet fully understand how my body trends & cycles. This morning I work up & took my glucose again, 157 after having eaten 7 hours earlier. Not happy with the result, but I headed to the gym & took it again expecting a lower result: 199!!! I don't understand how I can manage my diabetes with diet & exercise with results like this. Any suggestions on how to combat the rise in glucose after exercising?

I'm just not giving up on me. I will never stop trying to be healthy, no matter my failures and shortcomings.
