  • Keeping blood sugars low after exercise sessions



    I have, I think, found a solution (suggested to me yesterday in the "Too Hot to Exercise!" thread by DiabetesCanKissMyButt.


    I have to eat first. I can't exercise on an empty stomach and still avoid a spike.


    I just did a ten-minute intense strength training session about a half hour after finishing eating. My sugars went down! Always before, they've gone up 20 to 40 points. This is amazing. Tomorrow I'll find out if it works equally well for cardio. If it does, I'm in clover.


    I didn't get nauseated this time, either, and I always have before when I've eaten prior to exercise.


    I also wonder: could my intake of coconut oil have something to do with both the lack of nausea and the lowered sugars after exercise? Because that's really the only change I've made since the last time I tried this. Thoughts, experiences?

    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Today is cardio day.


    I just did twenty minutes of low-impact aerobic dance, about one hour after eating.


    Blood sugar immediately following?


    108.


    AWESOME.

      Griff that's great! Sounds like you've found a solution.


      I popped the DVD in the mail yesterday. Hopefully you'll get it in a few days if the USPS can get it from CO to CA in a reasonable time frame.

        @DaveFish: Thanks!


        Unfortunately when I tested a half hour after exercising, it had shot up to 126. But that's still better than 147!

          Griff do you have a problem with high sugar counts in the morning after fasting (sleeping) all night?

            Vick: Yes, I do. I hate it.


            I also discovered that one of my recently-pierced piercings is infected, which easily explains my elevated BGLs today. *sigh* *goes to put antibacterial soap on it*

              Griff, I have the same problem with the high BGL in the morning. But when I was first diagnosed with T2D I did a lot of research and found that elevated morning levels are not that unusual for some people - it's your body's way of waking you up. Don't let it discourage you.
