Re: High Blood Sugar AFTER exercise

Message 1 of 2

What did you eat for breakfast and how much sugar was in it? Did you eat or drink anything while doing the yard work?

 

I only check my blood sugar once a day now and that is in the morning. When I first found out I had Type two diabetes I know it would go up quite a bit between breakfast and lunch depending on what I ate and how much exercise I did. I was checking my blood/sugar three times a day. I had to work very hard to get it down to where the doctor wanted it. 

 

I take Metformin too, one tablet in the morning after breakfast and another after dinner in the evening. Insulin is taken around eight PM each night.

Does anyone have advise for when your blood sugars goes up (225>) after 2-3 hours of yard work? The morning BS averages 108 and I average 22 carbs for breakfast.  I make metformin and glipizide.  thanks!
