T2D; blood sugar goes UP after a.m. workout
Hi. I'm a Type 2 diabetic. I workout at the gym (30 minutes of combined cardio & weights) at 7am a couple days a week.
Before workout I generally drink a cup of black coffee w/1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil in it, then eat breakfast after the workout. I thought by eating fat before the workout I would be training my body to use fat for fuel, but....I've noticed that my post-workout blood glucose is always higher, by 20-30 clicks, than the reading I got when I first got up. Is my body too used to using blood glucose for fuel, and therefore creating its own when I start exercising?
I take meds (Byetta & metforming) with breakfast, and as the morning progresses my blood sugar comes down and is around 100 by lunchtime.
I have not been religiously Primal of late, but am working on it yet again. I know this will influence my blood sugars.
Anyway, thanks in advance for any info/insight/hacks you can give. Am wondering if I should try eating half a banana or something before I work out.
