Ok, so recently I switched from mostly cardio to a more mixed strength exercise routine. It’s actually caused my bgs to get higher. This morning for example I started my workout at 172 and halfway through my exercise it was 432. Needless to say, I called it quits, took some insulin, and grabbed my water. But has anyone else experienced this? How are you guys staying fit? Help!
I get this as well, my diabetes nurse said that I should wait about an hour after exercising before testing my blood sugar again. Due to all the adrenaline pumping through our bodies, our blood levels tend to temporarily rise, and until we have fully rested they start to come back down again. This is when many people experience hypos, as do I, it is a very fine balance. Using an insulin pump, I tend to increase my insulin a little during exercise, and then decrease it shortly after to hopefully avoid the lows. I’m not to sure how it would work on injections tho,
I know what your saying it’s so frustrating when things don’t happen the way you want them to. Hope this helps.
