Exercise effect on blood glucose

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise effect on blood glucose


Avatar m tn t have enough insulin available to help the glucose get into the cells, and to regulate how much glucose the liver releases, then the net effect is that your blood glucose will be higher after exercise.
Avatar m tn However, intense exercise can have the opposite effect and actually increase your blood glucose levels. The body recognizes intense exercise as a stress and releases stress hormones that tells your body to increase available blood glucose to fuel your muscles. If your glucose levels exceed normal levels discuss with your doctor medication or medication adjustment.
Avatar n tn I have read that Type 2s can dampen that phenomemn by having a small snack that has protein and long-acting carbos before bedtime. APparently, the effect is that blood glucose levels are kept above "the point" at which the liver will dump glucose into the bloodstream to raise it. "the point" is not something I know and I don't know if anyone does. On another board, I read several reports that this technique prevented their early morning highs.
Avatar f tn If you have poor release of insulin, then after exercise the blood glucose can rise. While exercising the brain gets a signal to increase blood glucose to meet the extra body demand. If this increased sugar is able to trigger an increased insulin response, the blood sugar gets lowered. Otherwise, it remains high. You should get GTT or glucose tolerance test, fasting blood sugar, post prandial sugar done and glycosyltaed hemoglobin measured to know whether you have diabetes or not.
Avatar m tn Check your glucose level in the middle of the night (around 3 AM). If your blood sugar is high, you are probably experiencing Dawn Phenomenon. One thing to try is not to snack 2-3 hours before bedtime. Carbs will raise glucose levels during the night.
1538488 tn?1331483305 My fasting blood glucose is 110-125 mg/dl.hba1c is 7.96. My age is 57 years.After 2 hrs of b/f 165-190mg/dl. No medication.Glucose level slightly increase after exercise in the morning .What action is to be taken?
Avatar n tn My blood test was fine also, although I did not test for specific hormones and possible nutritional deficiencies. My fasting glucose levels were fine and my glucose levels after a test meal were fine also. What is a stress test? Could it be that all those things are due to being stressed out?
Avatar m tn But that depends on your type of medication, diet/nutrition, physical exercise, and how your often/when you test your glucose levels. This would include what was discussed during your last regular scheduled checkup with your doctor's office. That is information you didn't give us.
Avatar f tn and the prednisone actually raising or lowering the blood glucose because then it is high or low and those numbers will effect you. Does that make sense? What I do know is that if those are accurate readings, you may no longer be pre-diabetes but may have diabetes. What is your A1C? What do you do to treat your pre-diabetes; what is important is to lose weight if you need to, lower carb intake and get regular exercise. 215 is definitely in the zone where complications begin to form.
Avatar m tn Marijuana does nothing to affect blood glucose levels either direction. Glucose levels in type 2 diabetes are maintained by weight loss, exercise and reduction of carbs. The only effect marijuana might have is to give you the munchies when you might eat things that could raise your blood sugar. If you are having trouble maintaining blood sugar in target range talk with your doctor about putting you on some meds.
Avatar m tn I'm confused how exercise can have an affect on a blood test... explain? I thought this thread was going to be something along the lines of... should I exercise because I haven't eaten anything since the day before... not smart, btw.
Avatar n tn m finding it extremely difficult to exercise without having to eat first to prevent a low blood glucose, eat immediately afterward because I have a low blood glucose, or having a high glucose afterwards followed by a low bg later. I'm currently using an insulin pump and have tried several things like suspending it an hour before and during exercise, changing to a temp. basal afterward, and at times giving a correction bolus when my bg jumps from 5 mmol/L to 18 mmol/L after certain workouts.
Avatar f tn An A1c of 6.6% indicates your estimated average glucose is 146.72 mg/dl, not "but normal the rest of the day at 100 or less." We can't speak for your doctor as to why he/she made the decision on Metformin. Call your doctor for that answer.
Avatar f tn It has dropped my LDL to 39-45 range and blood glucose ranges from 105-111 fasting. A1c 5.1 - 5.3. Prior to the statin I was below 100. I am not overweight, exercise consistently and eat very healthy. So the statin is the culprit. I am wondering if being stricter on carb intake and supplementing with Berberine will help? Or has anyone had better outcomes with other statins like livalo or pravastatin?
Avatar f tn Hi, I am not on meds, using diet and exercise to control but in the last 2 months have experienced frequent urination, mostly at night, some tingling/burning in feet and hands, again at night. My AM test readings ( bf eating ) recently have been in the range of 70-80 which if correct would lead me to think this is an improvement. IF that is so, why would the burning start --- something I have had vy little of until now.
Avatar m tn While your response is individual, in my experience, intense physical activity can make blood sugars high (this is due to the effect of adrenaline and also the liver releasing glucose). The high may be followed by lows later. Longer / less intense exercise may not have an immediate obvious impact at the time of exercise or it may make blood sugars go lower. I find long duration exercise will make my sugars go lower many hours later. What do do? 1.
798555 tn?1292787551 Extra virgin olive oil is fine, but it's value is mostly as a neutral oil. Fish oil, on the other hand, is a great source of HDL, the good cholesterol. Other sources are flax oil and hemp oil and edible algae. As for fish oil caps, they won't make you burp, that's the liquid. The gel caps don't dissolve until they're in the digestive system, unlike the liquid which burps all the way down.
Avatar f tn I'm from Portugal, and I've been suffering from cramps since 3 years ago. I've done a muscle biopsy, an exam with electric choques (electromiogram?) and blood analysis (lost count of them). I've been pushed from doctor to doctor, no one seems to know what I have. Severe cramps (leg and foot), day and night. The biopsy sugested metabolic myopathy but was not conclusive. Magnesium, potassium, etc are Ok. No history in the family. No hormone problems. No other symptoms.
1654177 tn?1319838494 Anyway, I told my doctor at Kaiser and she ran a random blood glucose test (non-fasting). My blood sugar was 68 ml/dl, the standard range is 70-140 ml/dl. She says to just eat less carbs and do more cardio exercise, and that this could be pre-diabetes. The part that concerns me is the numb feet. I have cut down carbs in the past 2 weks and continued to exercise more, but still my feet are numb, and hurt sometimes. Any advice?
Avatar m tn My question is when the blood sugar is going down. May I stop taking medication and focusing on exercise and diet only? Thank you very much in advance.
Avatar n tn is there anything you can do at home when your blood glucose is too high to bring it back down?
Avatar f tn You should have treatment (diet and exercise) and medications, if required to normalise your blood sugar. This is important for your baby to stay healthy. You would also have a risk of developing diabetes later in life after pregnancy an should guard against this with maintaining normal wieght and diet and exercise.
Avatar n tn At first, I thought this is near syncope, but recently I had a severe occurrence which my instinct told me to take my blood sugar, so I do and it was 39. I was on the verge of collapse and quickly drank a 12 oz soda and some orange juice. My sugar then shot up to 145 and although shakey I felt a lot better. 30 more minutes rolled around, I ate rice and chicken, and in the middle of my meal I began feeling lightheaded again...sugar had dropped back to 52, so I drank another soda.
Avatar m tn then work your way with your diet and exercise if possible to maintain your blood glucose at a safe range... that would be: 80 - 120 mg/dl upon waking up 80 - 120 mg/dl before meals 2 hours after meals, your levels should be less than 170 or 140 mg/dl if possible 70 - 140 mg/dl before you go to bed 70 - 110 mg/dl at 3:00 a.m.
