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?

Complicated disease: Diabetes is a complicated disease and often doesn't work the way we expect. You'd think that after exercise, the blood sugar would be good - but he could run a marathon and still have an elevated blood sugar after. It's a combo of how much Insulin he's producing and his muscles' sensitivity to insulin. Over weeks to months of exercise, he will see a change in his fasting sugars, so keep it up! ...Read more
