    Question of the Week | Why is post exercise glucose spiking?

    JR is 42 years old with type 2 diabetes and has worked up to brisk walking for 30 minutes on most days.  JR has an A1C of 6.7% and takes an SGLT-2, metformin, and lovastatin along with trying to eat healthfully. JR decided to check blood sugars an hour after exercise and was surprised to see post-exercise blood glucose in the 180’s on two different days. JR asks you why their blood glucose actually rises after exercise.

    What is the diabetes specialist’s best response?

    1. This is most likely due to a low blood sugar from your medications followed by rebound hyperglycemia.
    2. Blood sugars normally drop after exercise. When is the last time you performed quality control on your meter?
    3. I understand what you are saying. It sounds like this blood sugar elevation is causing you some anxiety.
    4. Exercising causes the release of hormones that can temporarily cause your blood sugar to rise.
