Default BG on the rise

Help! I'm eating the same, exercising the same, or more, and my numbers are on the rise. I don't under stand, I'm still below 10 grams of carbs a day, and getting those carbs from the same small food list. I hit over 130 today. do you gals find that menstration effects BG? I'm back to work but have a food supply in the office, in my fridge. So nothing has changed other then the location where I eat. I did have a bad day on Monday where I was beyond exhausted. But I'm over that.

If I had the same problem I would first be suspect that my BS rises when I exercise (because mine always does), to find out, you must test right after you finish working out....

Or it is something your eating that is high carb (hiding)....based on what you say that is a long shot.....

Otherwise, see your doctor could be something new going on.....hope not though!

I have been waiting to check after I cool out a bit, from exercising, but it seems to be on a study rise and now it's in the 130's. My lowest in the last 2 days has been 106.the rest have been in the high 120's. Can infection do that?

It's heat, hormones, job stress, (but that very little right now.) or possibly an infection. I'm guessing hormones as the same thing happened last month, but not this drastically.ill lower my carbs and go more basic, and see if I can't get hold of this thing.

Why wait until you cool off? If you are going over 140, it will probably be right after or during the most intense part of your workout, as that is when you body would normal add sugar to your system for more energy.....

Exercise or even doing hard physical work must be tested just like you test foods you eat....otherwise your exercise might actually be hurting you. Doesn't mean you have to quit, just back off on intensity and/or length of time...until your body adjusts...

And yes, any kind of infection, pain, etc. can rise you BS....

In my experience all those things can affect blood sugar. Oddly stress lowers mine most of the time, while I hear that it more often raises BG. For me, personally I don't worry about a rise in BG unless it last for more than two days because out of the blue mine will go up for a day or two, but always comes back down to my normal range.

Somewhere I got the idea, I was suppose to wait 30 minutes after exercising!? Not sure where . Lol I'm usually very dizzy an weak when I'm done, I go as much as I can, then push for another 1/4 mile, or 1/2 if I can. I'm up to 1.5 miles on an incline as high as it will go. I'm not killing myself, but a good steady pace I feel like I can keep. I want to sweat, and be tired. But it seems the last few day the excercize isn't doing any good. I'm thinking its hormones. I am forcing myself to eat, I have found if I wait till I'm hungry it messes with my numbers, so I try to eat before my tummy reminds me. But I'm not hungry, do you think I should be fasting? And is that a benifit? I have also went up 10 pounds in 2 days. I think it's fluid, but I don't see any bloating or extra inches. I have a doctors appointment for Friday t check for infections, and do some blood work.

BG....Working out is always important, unless the intensity of the workout blows up your BS! When I started doing my 'normal' workouts after I joined this website and was following LCHF, I tested my BS right before and right after I finished my workouts. What I found was that my BS blew up! Frequently from say 110 to over 200!OMG! It did not come down sometimes until the next day. My liver was dumping sugar to the max in my bloodstream! This level of sugar in my body every other day had to be doing lots of damage in my body!

I stopped those 'high intense workouts' right away! I started over, using a lateral bike, alternating every other day to lap swimming doing the Breast Stroke....I warm up for 10 minutes, exercise for 30 min. keeping my heart rate below my 80% target (Aerobic)! Then a 5-7min. cool down. In this way I have learned to keep my BS from going over 120....and in total I have lost over 60lbs (The first 50 was strictly do to LCHF eating)

I am just saying be careful! Diabetes impacts everything in your life, including your ability to work physically hard or exercise with high intensity. I strongly believe that most of us can slowly increase both time and intensity, but managing our BS has to be the primary controlling point. If not, you could get in great shape and find you have major health issues caused by having continual high blood sugars.....and these side effects are not worth the risk...!

Very interesting post. I had not thought to check my BG before and after my workout. My workouts are no longer intense. I walk on a treadmill about 1.5 miles. I also started riding my stationary bike for about 20-25 min on low resistance. I've lost a lot of inches.

alamogirl... you posted that "I'm usually very dizzy an weak when I'm done, I go as much as I can, then push for another 1/4 mile, or 1/2 if I can. I'm up to 1.5 miles on an incline as high as it will go. I'm not killing myself, but a good steady pace I feel like I can keep. I want to sweat, and be tired."

This sounded like a intense workout! Maybe I got the wrong impression....regardless, test before and after this workout, then you will truly know if the intensity is safe for your diabetes...

We all are different.....that is the one thing we know for sure...
