My husband has type 2 diabetes. Yesterday he went on a two mile hike. His night time blood sugar we're high and still elevated this morning. Why?
Stress: Sometimes when diabetic patients undergo stress (prolonged exercise for example) stress hormones (cortisol and adrenalin) can increase glucose. However it is still important for him to follow up with his doctor because it does not appear that the exercise he did was particularly stressful. In general patients with type 2 diabetes experience hypoglycemia (low sugar) in response to exercise.See 1 more doctor answer

Lose the weight: The first part of treating diabetes is to lose weight. I know how difficult that can be but I'm just saying. Your medicine, metformin, is taken two times a day with food. The most important test which is done by the doctor is called hemoglobin A 1 C and its value should be from 6.7-7.5% It can be lower with great control but its the most important.
Diet, exercise +meds: The first and best way is to control the diet.This is ideally done with the help of a nutrtionist and diabetes expert. Stability in the diet ie eating 3 meals and 2 snacks a day, keeping carbs stable and lowering calories not only helps with weight loss but also with deciding on med choice. The medications for diabetes are excellent, and your doctor can help find the best choice if diet isn't enough.See 1 more doctor answer
