My understanding of the issue is that when you go for heavy anaerobic exercise, particularly when your blood sugar is elevated, the exercise can push your blood sugar up further.

Gentler exercise at an aerobic pace on the other hand will tend to reduce it.

So, we are in a trap - go too easy, and we might as well not bother, push too hard and up goes the number.

My OH uses a heart rate monitor to ensure that she doesn't push her heart rate up into the anaerobic zone - even if that means she walks for a few hundred yards. Me? I stick to walking anyway.

And I stick to keeping my blood sugar under 140 (7.8) at all times, if at all possible. While exercise is all well and good, and for people who can handle it, I approve, but I know the high blood sugar from diabetes will kill me if I let it, and I have no intention of letting it, exercise be damned. I sure as heck would not be doing anything that shot blood sugar up to 200!

The solution is to have a lower starting point. And that can be achieved by having lower stores of glucose in the liver. If there's not much to be dumped, not much will be dumped.

Hi, John. Thanks for your contribution.Do you know any diabetic T2 that have complications with diabetes due to anaerobic exercises?

Hi, SKB. Out of curiosity do you know any diabetic T2 that have complications with BG due to anaerobic exercises?

Diabetic complications are caused by consistent higher BG numbers. The cause for which is predominantly diet. BG profile (numbers throughout the day) can swing wildly with uncontrolled diet & medication or remain in a tightly controlled range with discipline & dedication. In the former case, the difference between the highs & lows can be as high as 100-150 points, whereas with the latter it can be narrowed down to 30-40 points. Within both these scenarios, exercise will also cause proportionate fluctuations, larger in case 1 & smaller in case 2. There is no point in looking for needles in the haystack, while ignoring the haystack itself.

As SKB stated above, complications arise due to long term exposure to high blood sugar. Identifying what drove that high blood sugar is unnecessary and will invariably have multiple drivers.

As SKB says, we want rid of the haystack - not just a few needles!

My point is , right now, that no matter what exercises( aerobic, anaerobic, HIIT) you make for the large majority of us (T2)it will be beneficial with no side effects on long term diabetes. I was just trying to find any case that would contradict this point amongst us so I would know the risks.

We appear to be going in circles.

The point that I made is that any process - including exercise - that causes blood sugar to rise or to remain above about 140 mg/dL will cause damage. That damage will accumulate over time and lead to complications.
